The Qme MD for WC ins lied in both his 1st and 2nd reports regarding the tests he performed on me and what I was able to do. The WC insurance has denied requested medical care/procedures based upon this doctors reports. TGhe judge in the trieal based his award instructions partly on this doctors opinions. My QME and their QME were at exact opposite on the spectrum. Do I have any recourse against this doctor. My attorney does not want to go after him. I live in California. This whole process has taken 7 years. I have a back injury with annular tears and bulging discs at 3 levels. It has also just been discovered through an MRI that my neurologist (non WC MD) ordered that the TARLOV cysts which were very small in the 1st MRI 7 years ago have increased in size significantly are now wrapped around nerve roots, interfering with my spinal cord and could be eroding my tail bone. These were never followed up on by any of the doctors and I consider them to be the source of my very significant pain that I live with every minute. WC denied any further MRIs of my back after the 1st ones. Could this be considered medical malpractice in that these were never folowed up on?
