employer contacting employee's doctor

after submitting FMLA paperwork my doctor was contacted by a doctor for clarification, this doctor asked for stipulations that my doctor see me with each fmla absence misleading him to think it was necessary for FMLA
Is this legal or did this doctor go beyond clarification and authentication?

FMLA question

I am afraid I don't have enough information to answer your question. In general, an employer's retained physician may contact your personal physician for clarification of a condition you suffer from, provided you have given permission for that step to occur. Your question mentions 'Misleading stipulations' but without more information on the exchange between the two doctors I cannot answer the question.
Feel free to contact my office should you have further questions.
