Authorization No. 167381-3W
November 9, 2020
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. Steve Chuan Sung’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective October 31, 2020. Dr. Sung's last known business addresses are:
Seton Health System Medical Urgent Care
79 Vandenburgh Avenue
Troy, New York 12180
119 Big Bay Road
Queensbury, New York 12804
The Chair’s designee’s investigation has revealed that the New York State Department of Health, State Board for Professional Medical Conduct (BPMC), has issued an Interim Order of Conditions # 20-264, wherein Dr. Sung is precluded from practicing medicine in New York State, or in any jurisdiction where his practice is predicated on his New York State medical license, pending a determination that no hearing is necessary, resolution of a consent order of the matters under investigation, or issuance of a Hearing Committee’s Determination and Order.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Sung may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Sung is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers, or to conduct 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. Sung for services rendered prior to October 31, 2020, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Sung for services rendered prior to October 31, 2020, 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.
