Subject Number 046-1608 Temporary Suspension of Dr. Oludotun Adegoke

Subject Numbers Regarding Health Provider Authorizations

Authorization No. 305942-5W

May 30, 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. Oludotun Adegoke's authorizations to treat injured workers and perform independent medical examinations within the New York State workers' compensation system effective May 26, 2023. Dr. Adegoke's last known business addresses are:

15 S. Main Street, Suite 150
Jamestown, New York 14701

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 Interim Order of Conditions No. 23-106, wherein Dr. Adegoke is precluded from practicing medicine in New York State or in any setting or jurisdiction where his practice is predicated upon his New York State medical license, and agreed to be bound by the said Order until it is determined by the Director of the Office of Professional Medical Conduct that no hearing is warranted, the resolution by consent order of the matters under investigation, or issuance and service of a Hearing Committee's Determination and Order after the conclusion of a hearing.

Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Adegoke may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.

Dr. Adegoke 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. Adegoke for services rendered prior to May 26, 2023, are valid but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Adegoke for services rendered prior to May 26, 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.
