Taking witnesses, recording exams, making notes and verifying what happened are all well and good, but the report is 99% written before you walk through the door of the medical office. IME's are designed to give the insurance company ammo to deny the claim. Your best weapon against an IME report is to forewarn your treating doctor. The IME report has to be sent to your treating doctor for approval/disapproval and you need to keep on top of the treating doc to insure he doesn't sign off the approval on a crappy IME diagnosis. Head the IME report off at the pass, have your treating doc disagree with negative IME opinions, and then the insurance company will have wasted the hundreds of dollars spent to set up that IME.
