Re: Remedy Against a Lying IME Doctor
People have to understand the purpose of an IME.
That IME is hired by the carrier to give an alternate opinion independent of your treating doctors influence.
It's not supposed to be fair, independent of bias or favorable to your claim.
That doctor is paid by the carrier to give an alternate opinion supporting their interest, nothing more.
Go to the IME, leave the tape recorder at home, be polite, cooperate and get out of there as fast as possible - that doctor wrote his report before seeing you, that so called exam is just going through the motions to look legitimate.
At the end of the day, your treating doctors opinion should carry more weight, that IME is just a desperate attempt to undermine your claim - quit wasting energy on it.
