You don't say what state you were injured in. Laws vary. In Washington, you can audio record an exam, in Oregon you can't. I strongly suggest you read all the articles in the IWA File Library
There's a link in one of them to another excellent resource, "PrairieLaw."
Find out your state laws regarding IME's. If you were injured in Oregon, call the Ombudsman's office. (1-800-927-1271)
Most importantly, never go alone. Have a witness in the exam room within hearing range of everything said. Immediately afterwards, take down notes of everything that happened and was said by the ?doctor?
Also, make sure you get a copy of the report from your own doctor or attorney and write down and report every discrepency (There will be many).
