Re: Refused a second opinion

File a motion for a second medical opinion with the Executive Secretary of the NC Industrial Commission. Attach copies of the medical records and medical recommendation for a second opinion.

You might also ask for assignment of an Industrial Commission rehabilitation nurse.

Good luck, George
