While you are required to attend an IME in Arizona work comp. law from time to time, do not assume that this doctor is going to give you medical advice. Chances are, the doctor they have picked has performed these IME's for this specific insurance company in the past. The doctor may not tell you anything that day but will author a report. Ask the insurance adjuster for a copy of that report.
The IME Doctor Is Not Going To Treat You
The doctor you have been sent to is probably not going to take over your care. He or she is probably been hired just to exam you. The time he or she spends with you may not be long and may seem unusually short. However, it is the right of the worker's comp. insurance company to have you seen by a doctor of their choosing.
