Claimant filed a PFB for authorization of a referral to prosthetic clinic which the E/C denied as premature. The JCC found the doctor’s testimony supported the E/C position in that the doctor opined referral would be appropriate in the future after claimant underwent revision surgery. Petition DENIED.
