Patient :I was in a three car accident recently . And I was in the middle of two cars one ran into me which push me into another car. I went to urgent care bc I was having very bad back pains. And the urgent care nurse practitioner had gave me meds and refered me to go to physical therapy. So now im finally back at work after be off for two weeks and have seen the p.t. 4 times now and gradually I am getting better. However I apply for fmla for p.t. intermittent leave and my main physician said she won't sign the papers because she didn't assign me there and the physical therapy said he can't sign it nor the nurse practitioner said she can't they said only my physician but she won't sign the papers but I still need to go there to help my back to get back to 100percent. What should I do?
