As most of you know I was/am waiting for a approval on a fusion now my employer is sending me to "yet another" Independent Medical Evaluation, in New Haven Ct. for his opinion. I have to bring all reports and tests, procuders. Has anyone else had to do this. I've had 3 doctors here tell me the fusion is the next step, The Ortho, the sport specialest that did the IDET and my Workers Comp doctor ,why do I need an other opinion "OR" is my company trying to get out of the cost of the operation . I do not have a lawyer yet because I have not needed one. But I think after I see this doctor I might get one. I see Doctor the 24th.
Stewart, being from Conn, Have you heard of Robert Margolis at Yale Sports Medicne, New Haven,. I live in Springfield MA. area so I figuer about 1 1/2hour easy. My husband will take me cause I can't sit to drive that far. This will definatily prolong any surgery date. I would like any input from anyone. Everyone has been so good in the past. Sue K
