“Andrew Michael Garrett, D.C. is hereby forever removed from the Texas workers’ compensation system’s designated doctor list [which] removal shall be permanent, of indefinite duration and without a right of reconsideration at any point in the future. . . .“ So, what did he do?  He performed 11 exams and never filed a report from the exams.  To top it off he refused to perform subsequent DD exams when appointed to do so.  The icing on the cake was his failure to respond to a Letter of Clarification.  And then there was the cherry on top of the icing on top of the cake – he is forever banned from providing treatment within the Texas workers’ compensation system and was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine.
