Oklahoma City, OK asked in Workers' Compensation and Medical Malpractice for Oklahoma

Q: W/C ins doctor made reference that an attorney fired me, is this ethical for a doctor to do on a medical report ?

The attorney had improper contact with the ins attorney as monetary amounts were pre set. I am pro se and am fine with it. However, the insurance Co. Doctor make a reference on his report that he should not have known as I didn't tell him my legal situation - the only one that could was the insurance attorney. Is this an unethical action on the doctors part or ins attorneys part ?
