Disability / FMLA

Disability / FMLA

In the event that you require forms to be completed for your employer as the result of pregnancy or surgery, the following are some basic guidelines:

  • Leave Related to Obstetrical Care
  • Leave Related to Surgery
  • Disability/FMLA

Medical disability for an uncomplicated vaginal or c/section delivery is 6 (six) weeks following delivery. Any extension of the six week post partum disability period must be due to complications. All extensions are done at the doctor’s discretion and will be discussed with you at the time you are seen for the problem. Failure to make, and keep, recommended post partum visits in the six week period does not constitute cause for extending medical disability.

There is a $10 fee to complete your paperwork.

We require at least 10 working days for form completion and physician signature.

Each surgical procedure we perform has a recovery period which follows the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology guidelines.

You can obtain surgery specific recovery information when scheduling your procedure with us, or at any time by calling Sherrie or Toni in our office.

Barring unforeseen complications, we do not extend post operative recovery disability leave. Failure to make, and keep, recommended post op appointments does not constitute cause for extending medical disability.

Family medical leave is not necessarily synonymous with medical disability, therefore we do not complete forms allowing for unlimited intermittent FMLA. Please ask your employer concerning your rights under the Federal Medical Leave Act.
