Per Rule 3, the official always has final say on all rulings and judgments. Not that I would recommend an official overrule and onsite, designated medical professional. But, it is still within the realm of the official's responsibilities, duties and authority to make a ruling. I'll give you an extreme - what if the "designated medical person" seemed like a crackpot, and they gave a pass to some kid with oozing leisions? You wouldn't have to accept that, in that extreme case.
But, it would have to be an extremely exceptional circumstance before I would ever advise an official to exercise that authority.
