(Texas) I rcvd my impairment rate - sand3rd - 01-31-2010

I rcvd the medical evaluation per DD state I reached my MMI and gave me 5% impairment.. My doctor disagree on MMI he said how can DD say I reach MMI when I have not had my 2nd ESI which is 02/04/10..My doctor said will send letter to Worker Comp Ins with disagreement....What happen next does anyone know? What should i do if I'm not ready I'm still in pain? Is 5% good for the diagnosis?
