Authorization No. 203881-8W
September 25, 2015
Pursuant to Workers' Compensation Law Section 13-d(4), the Chair of the New York State Workers' Compensation Board has exercised his authority to temporarily suspend Dr. Alexander Yin Lee’s authorization to treat injured workers within the New York State workers’ compensation system effective August 24, 2015. Dr. Lee's last known business address is 422 Atlantic Avenue, East Rockaway, New York 11518.
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 Order # 15-186, wherein Dr. Lee did not contest charges against him including, that on or about April 17, 2013, the District Court of Nassau County, Hempstead, New York, found him guilty of Reckless Endangerment in violation of New York Penal Law §120.20, a class A misdemeanor, and Reckless Driving in violation of New York Vehicle and Traffic Law §1212, a misdemeanor and he was sentenced on August 19, 2013 to 30 days’ incarceration and three (3) years’ probation, a suspension of his drivers’ license, and seventy dollars ($70.00) in fees and surcharges, and which resulted in the further penalty of a Censure and Reprimand and a two thousand five hundred dollar ($2,500.00) fine.
Therefore, the Chair believes that Dr. Lee may be guilty of misconduct, and that such misconduct would detrimentally affect the quality of care provided to injured workers.
Dr. Lee is prohibited from rendering treatment and care to injured workers while his authorization is temporarily suspended. Reports submitted by Dr. Lee for services rendered prior to August 24, 2015, are valid, but are invalid for any services rendered on or after that date. Requests to cross-examine Dr. Lee for services rendered prior to August 24, 2015, 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.
