Subject Number 046-1453 Temporary Suspension of Dr. Luis Marcelo Fandos

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 208260-0W

September 28, 2021

Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised her authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Luis Marcelo Fandos' authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers' compensation system effective September 23, 2021. Dr. Fandos' last known business address is:

New York Pain Consultants
8 Saxton Avenue, Suite E
Bay Shore, New York 11706

The Board's investigation has revealed improprieties in bills and reports filed by Dr. Fandos. Accordingly, the Chair's designee believes that Dr. Fandos may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect injured workers. Dr. Fandos' authorization shall be temporarily suspended pending the results of the Chair's designee's full investigation.

Dr. Fandos is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, and from conducting reviews of records regarding variance requests pursuant to 12 NYCRR § 324.3(b)(2)(ii)(a), while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Fandos for services rendered prior to September 23, 2021, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Fandos for services rendered prior to September 23, 2021, should not be denied due to the suspension of his authorization.

This suspension remains in effect until further notice. Any questions regarding the authorized lists should be referred to the Medical Director's Office at 1 (800) 781-2362.

Clarissa M. Rodriguez
Chair
