Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
The employer may contact your son's doctor, but the doctor can not tell him anything without your express consent (assuming your son is a minor). Otherwise, the doctor would be violating HIPAA confidentiality laws regarding the disclosure of confidential medical information.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (Excellent or Good) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
