An injured worker is not required to see a "company doctor" or the employer's preferred doctor!  Injured workers have the right to choose their own doctor.  Injured workers also have the right to decide who, if anyone, will accompany them to the doctor. Injured workers have the right  to decline to have the company nurse or any employer representative accompany them to the hospital, doctor, or any other medical visit. And, your employer can't discriminate or retaliate against you.
