Is it legal for an employer to escort to an employee into the doctor's office for an examination? The Doctor says it is. I disagree. I understand maybe to the waiting area, but not into the exam room itself.

Thank you for your question. The patient has the right to privacy unless the court orders that the employer may accompany the employee into the examination. However, this means the patient has to assert the right and state that he/she refuses to have the employer in the examination and forbids the doctor from disclosing any information to the employer without the patient's explicit permission.

Please let me know if you have further questions or concerns on this issue.
