IME Policy

  • All IME’s are scheduled with our Medical Director, Howard Konowitz, MD
  • All patients will receive a New Patient Packet with an Initial Pain Questionnaire and Scantron Packet. The patient must arrive for their appointment with all Questionnaires completed.
  • A patient who doesn’t receive a New Patient Packet prior to the appointment must arrive (1) one hour before their scheduled appointment to complete the paperwork.
  • If the patient refuses to fill out the Initial Pain Questionnaire, the physician will not be able to perform an examination and the visit will be terminated.
  • If the patient does not keep their scheduled appointment without proper notification, or the visit has to be terminated due to the refusal or untimely completion of the Initial Pain Questionnaires, a fee will be billed to the party who scheduled the IME visit.
  • IME visits can only be cancelled and/or rescheduled by the party who scheduled the initial visit. We will not accept the patient’s cancellation and bill for a No Show visit.
  • All medical data needed for the IME is to be mailed to our Main Office:
    Comprehensive Pain Management Group
    3633 West Lake Ave
    Suite 302
    Glenview, IL 60026

    It must be received 1 week prior to the appointment. This is where our charts are prepared and maintained.
  • Please do not mail or fax medical data to any other office or fax number. This may result in the IME physician not receiving critical information to complete your IME request, or possible cancellation of the IME. Only send medical data to the address listed above.
  • Please do not mail X-ray or imaging films to our office. Please have the patient bring them to the appointment.
