ime doctor lied about my report
I recently went to a IME Doctor, I have a herninated L-5 disc which is now in my canal, have problems walking and unable to move or balance on my foot.
He viewed me for 10 minutes never looked at my foot watched me walk 5 ft, in his report he said I was fine, go back to full duty climbing 300 ft aday1
5 nerou surgens say in need back surgery if its not to late, this has been going on for 1-1\2 years, WC DROPPED me, thanks to this so called doctor report lol
I went another doctor on my own after the Ime doctor seen me, He could not believe this so called IME doctors report!
Now we are fighting and it looks to be a long one, I am thinking of using RICO against this Doctor, he needs to be have his so called fake doctors degree takin away from Him!
Peace

RE: ime doctor lied about my report
Beware of the workers comp docs. They don't work for you. Their paid whether you are well or not. My doctor said he found problems with my FCE so he would not sign off on it and told me to return to work. But he didi say I could come and see him whenever I needed.

RE: ime doctor lied about my report
Jammer, no attorney fights against the IME, they will perfom a Depo with that doctor, and try to clean up the medical report for you.

It's up to you, not a comp attorney to report the doctor if you think there was fraud.

I caution you there too. For if you look at the IME report, it flat out states the doctor is saying in their own words it's a Medical Opinion... That does not state their giving Facts.... Only a medical Opinion...

RE: ime doctor lied about my report
Jammer I was sent to several IME's, I only had 1 that was in agreement with my doctor, my surgeon, and second opinion Neurosurgeon I had. All the others were like you had, some not as bad, but still not good.

Hang in there, and I too agree it isn't worth risking you life ever.

Hey here is a good read for you, you might have to expand the print to 100% though to read it;

Did you finally have surgery? I am probably unemployed as of this week, and they called be back for a little bit of light duty yet they say we expect full duty as they say we will rely on the ime doctor`s report, So I am stuck between a rock and a hard spot right where they want me, I worked light duty a year and 4 months, I think I did my time there time to go.
Have a good one

RE: ime doctor lied about my report
Jammer, yes, I had surgeries, not just one though. I was 1st injured, tried ever conservative measure medically could be spoke of, then had surgery, a 3 level Cervical (neck) Spine Fusion. I went to pt, and I was healed. Went back to heavy duty work. Close to a year later from that injury, a co-worker from another department played a prank on me. I blew out that fusion, plate and screws in my neck, it was an ouch, heard a pop, and a crack in less then a second. Found out I then needed a 6 level cervical fusion. But first the 3 level had to be re-done right away for my safety. That healed, went back, took that plate and screws out, stitched me up in the front, flipped me over, cut me from have way up my head to half way down my back, and performed the 6 level cervical fusion, with a Bone growth Stimulator that does work , and help the healing process, and healed the fusions. What is the strange part, I was removed from work, meaning advised no work both times by my treating doctor, on the exact same month and date, just the year was different. I also found I have Spinal Stenosis in the Lumbar Spine at levels L1 - L2 - L3. No surgery, and can be somewhat painful at times. Then in 2006 during an FCE test, I finished up ruining my left knee. (This I did not put or try to put on work comp) I had the left Knee replaced with a new joint in 2007. Now my right knee is giving me problems, most likely need it replaced also soon. Seems Arthritis likes me. If you ask, yes I am legally medicated for the rest of my life now.

I won't tell you what you should, or could do with your employer, because there is not one good answer to give you. But, I'm going to say, your body, and your mind will guide you, but, you must let it do it's job so you know what you have to do. That is all you can do. Would I fight your case if I were you. That is an easy answer for me, and it is Yes, hell yes, I would fight to the end. Most times your going to win. The down fall is the time it takes, and no money or income coming in at times makes it hard. I was lucky, survived that money part, not always easy, never is, nor never will it be. You just have to somehow start to prepare for it. You want to fight it, prepare now, any way you can think of prepare, as I said, it wont be an easy step. Then I say to you, if you fight it, you can stop ever, for you will then loose out big time. You wont get rich, you wont fill your pockets with money, and when it's all over, and done with, if you break even, or come out with some cash, consider yourself ahead of the game. That my friend is work comp. No winners....
