Independent Medical Evaluation
The healthcare professionals conduct an examination of an individual to help answer specific questions related to a variety of situations, e.g., a disability claim; workers' compensation case; a personal injury lawsuit (tort claim); impaired professionals program; or sexual harassment in the workplace.
Independent medical examinations may be conducted to determine the cause, extent and medical treatment of a work-related or other injury where liability is at issue; whether an individual has reached maximum benefit from treatment; and whether any permanent impairment remains after treatment. An independent medical examination may be conducted at the behest of an employer or an insurance carrier to obtain an independent opinion of the clinical status of the individual.

Frequently Asked Questions about Pain Management
Do you need a referral for pain management?
A referral is required for several reasons. The most important is to provide the evaluating pain management physician with all relevant history and data so that the consultation is productive and focused on the patient and his/her pain problem. Some insurances require referral to see a pain specialist. The best way to obtain a referral to a pain management specialist is through your primary care physician.
Should I drive myself to my pain management appointment?
Depending on your circumstances, you will be advised of the need for someone to drive you home after your first appointment. It is our policy that every patient who has an invasive procedure must have a ride home. Many procedures performed can cause associated numbness, weakness, and/or loss of position sense, which can make the ability to operate an automobile difficult.
What happens at the first pain management appointment?
It is important to know what to expect at your first pain management appointment. At your first visit, you meet with Dr. Khan who reviews your pain problem and medical history. He performs a medical history, physical examination and reviews any test or radiology reports. Your physician will develop a customized pain treatment plan based on your individual assessment. This initial evaluation is important, because a full and complete assessment is a key component in developing your customized treatment plan.
Will I be treated on the first visit to a pain management clinic?
In some cases, patients are treated on the first visit. However, most patients will be scheduled for their follow up visit after undergoing appropriate preparation. At Rehabilitation and Pain Management Center of MD the pain management process consists of communication with the patient’s primary care physician and specialists as part of a team approach to a comprehensive care plan.
Who do I call for a prescription refill?
In general you should contact the office of the physician who prescribed the medication. Please note that opiate analgesic prescriptions are NEVER renewed over the telephone.
Will my pain doctor act as my primary care physician?
We respect the integrity of your relationship with your physician and recognize its value as a vital source of information and support in your pain management treatment plan. We work with your physician, keeping them updated on your care and follow-up plans as well as educating how pain management clinics work.
