IME/Impairment Rating 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.
