We are deeply saddened to inform you that our dear friend and colleague Bill Nemeth passed away on December 28, 2019.  William “Bill” Nemeth, M.D. was truly a giant in workers’ compensation and occupational medicine.  Bill served numerous roles in the field of workers’ compensation over the course of his remarkable career.  During his tenure as Medical Advisor to the Division of Workers’ Compensation, Bill helped lead a much-needed transition to evidence-based medicine in workers’ compensation.  Bill’s emphasis on evidence-based medicine and his contributions to the ODG Treatment Guidelines improved care for all injured workers in Texas.  Bill recognized earlier than most the dangers of over-treatment with opioids.  He treated his patients’ pain and addiction issues with an empathy that came from personal experience.  Bill also had a gift for being able to explain the most difficult medical concepts in a way that everyone could understand.  We all relied heavily on Bill’s vast knowledge and expertise but it is his wit, humor, and compassion that will be most dearly missed.
