Subject Number 046-1586 Temporary Suspension of Arkadiy Shusterman, M.D.

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 217079-3W

March 6, 2023

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. Arkadiy Shusterman's authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers' compensation system, effective February 22, 2023. Dr. Shusterman's last known business addresses are:

95-25 Jamaica Avenue
Woodhaven, New York 11421

2501 86th Street
Brooklyn, New York 11214

and

280 Quentin Road
Brooklyn, New York 11223

The Chair's designee's investigation revealed that Dr. Shusterman has failed and refused to produce requested documents in response to a Notice to Produce served upon him by the Chair's Designee. As a result of the foregoing, the Chair believes that Dr. Shusterman may be guilty of misconduct under WCL §13-d(2)(f) for the refusal to produce "any relevant book or paper concerning his or her conduct under any authorization granted to him or her under this chapter."

Dr. Shusterman 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. Shusterman for services rendered prior to February 22, 2023, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Shusterman for services rendered prior to February 22, 2023, 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.
