Can my employer force me to go to one of their doctors?

Yes. For the first 90 days following your injury, you are obligated to treat with a "Panel Physician."  These medical providers are to be listed somewhere at your place of work, and you are required to select from the provided list until 90 days elapse.  If you are provided with a list of doctors, and you refuse to seek treatment from the medical providers designated as panel providers, your employer will not be required to pay for your medical treatment.  Very often the list is made up of urgent care facilities such as Worknet, Concentra, or WorkFirst, but you may see that your doctor is also on the panel list.  After the 90 days has elapsed, you may seek treatment from the medical provider of your choice, and the employer will have to pay for all reasonable, necessary and related treamtment, regardless of the provider.
