A question for 1171
#1
I had an IME appointment with my former wc treating doctor.
The information I received from the doctor's office was, "a evaluation of bilateral lower exteremities"

I am 4 months post surgery from a total knee replacement, my 3rd knee surgery of both knees.

Upon arriving at the appointment the nurse took me to x-ray and said we need to take pictures of your back.

My response was, why do you want pictures of my back when this appointment is to evaluate my knees. The nurse's reply was; "not anymore, we have a letter requesting an evaluation of your back"

I cooperated and had the x-rays taken, next was the examination and the doctor took history. The doctor ended with doing a quick exam of my knees. I am having problems with scar tissue and due not have good range of motion so I do not know if this doctor will place me at MMI for the knees, I also walk with a cane.

I called my attorney after the appointment and he was not notified of the change of purpose of the IME.

I have a hearing Thursday of this week to add my back to my wc claim, I have SI joint dysfunction, nerve pain down both legs and in my feet, along with 3 bulging disc.

The IME doctor did say he feels the problems of my back are related to the way I walk.

My question for you is; Is it legal for the insurance company to change the purpose of the IME without notifying my attorney or me?
Also how will the judge view the way the insurance campany setup the IME?

Thank you for reading this post, sorry it is so long.
