Dear Dr. Ruiz,
I read your letter to the AAPS Medical Sentinel, July/August 1999. I regret to inform you that not all of the Independent Medical Examiners are "hired guns." Some of them are even "honest physicians" who are truly independent.
There are physicians who are well trained in the field of IME's. And they often "call it like they see it" --- not the way some insurance companies wants or even another physician wants.
