i live in ma. fell at work broke my wrist. and have ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow. i have been seeing my doctor now for about 7 months.the first emg came back neg. he sent me for a repeat emg and came back positive for lesion at the elbow. two days befor i saw my doc i saw the IME doc who spent 15 minutes with me during the exam. then i went to see my doc 2 days later to discuss the emg report. he reccomended surgery and submitted to workers comp. then i find out today that the surgery was denied by workers comp because their IME doc said i didnt need it. How is a doctor who has seen me once for 15 minutes suppose to decide if i should have surgery or not oppose to the doc that has been seeing me for 7 months?
what do i do now?
Any input greatly appreciated. And thank you in advance
