Upon receipt of proof that the charges against Dr. Sadati have been withdrawn, the Chair has rescinded the temporary suspension and has reinstated this provider's authority to treat injured workers effective November 6, 2023. The Medical Director's Office will restore Dr. Sadati to the list of providers authorized to treat injured workers by November 6, 2023.
