I am 47 years old and have been found to have progressively

This answer was rated:

I am 47 years old and have been found to have progressively memory loss after being tested my neuropsychologist. I also was diagnosed with a seizure disorder 10 years ago. I would like to take FMLA while waiting on my new neurologist to complete all testing because I am struggling on performing my job as a registered nurse. Can the neuropsychologist sign the FMLA paperwork?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: It is Georgia
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: I work for the VA and is a part of the union
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that is it

Any doctor or healthcare provider can sign off on your FMLA paperwork. As long as they have knowledge of your serious medical conditions and can describe the treatment, estimated length of leave and rationale on why you need leave.
