I had my back injury on June 5, 2008. I saw the ER 3 times in two months waiting for work comp to get rolling. I actually laid in bed because I could not move for the first few months waiting on approvals from the WC. My DR was not happy with the delay which in turn hurt me a little more from the laying around not being able to do anything. Anyway a year and a few months later, I receive a call from my case worker stating they want to get an opinion from a DR they are familiar with in my area. So with that I called my lawyer to let him know and he said it is probably an IME. I told him I didn't think so because it ws never said. So I told my DR that I would be seeing a new DR and I wouldn't be seeing him anymore. He said good luck and right after that I received a letter in the mail stating that it was an IME. I called my rep. and she said it was and that I can only go to my pain clinic and my DR up until I see ther DR. So I did that but made an appt. with a new DR to get a new set of eyes on my back. This is after my appt. with there DR because I learned that he doesn't treat me he just gives a report. So I make that appt. and get a call from my rep. stating that they will not cover that appointment until after they get the report from there DR stating what steps they should take next. My whole point is it is not fair that everything depends on this one DR's report. So between the 2 surgeons, 3 neuroligist, 1 phys. ther. DR, and pain clinic DR. I have to wait for there ALMIGHTY DR report to come back before I can receive anymore treatment. Then I get a call after all this from my QRC and she says she talked to my rep earlier last week and she said I can continuwe at my pain clinic till the end of the month, which my QRC says that isn't what she said earlier to her or me. They can't make up ther mind and go back on ther words. No wonder so many people complain and you need to get a lawyer for this whole mess. Sorry so long it's as short as I could make it.
