I was sent to Dr. Femminineo by an auto insurance company. Upon receiving his evaluation from the insurance company, which had several things incorrect, my coverage for this claim was terminated. He seems to have decided that since I am 74 years old, all of my issues can be blamed on age, never mind that I had to have surgery to repair a crushed vertebrae the day after the accident & have had issues in the exact same place in the eight years since. By the way, in spite of my "age", I take zero maintenance prescriptions and, except for the back issue, am in perfect health per yearly physicals. He did an amazing job of putting exactly the spin on this that the insurance company is paying him to do. A pathetic example of a greedy doctor who will say anything for money. There is nothing "Independent" about these guys.The day I was there, the waiting room was full of people just waiting to be churned through this machine. What a way to make a living! I, also, don't know how they sleep at night, taking away benefits we are entitled to and have paid for. There really is no such thing as " lifetime benefits" under Michigan's No Fault Insurance. It is a myth, as long as there are so called professionals who will sell out in this manner.
I was sent to Dr Femminineo as an IME. His assessment was fair. When you see an IC IME you always seem to know the out come. He was my third IME, but was different than the others. He answered questions and gave good advice on rehab techniques and self treatments. He re-affirmed my doctors opinion probably because he knew/saw that I was honest and wasn't exaggerating my issue like many do (which is the main reason WC is so hard and contested by IC's).
I would absolutely not recommend this doctor. I went to him not knowing he was a "preferred" IME, also with the "crazy illusion" that doctors have some kind of medical oath they take to actually help & treat ppl. I had a treatment plan that was starting to work, I was starting to be able to at least handle the physical pain every day. He never read a single report being sent to him from testing, doctors, therapists, etc, would report I needed to start certain therapies when I had been in them for months, obviously didn't even glance at the report labeled MONTHLY THERAPY REPORT, he would review MRI, X-Ray, CT Scans, that all said the same thing along with the specialist report saying the same thing and say "there's nothing wrong, you are fine", yet an In-Patient treatment Facility 7 days/week would be beneficial...not sure why I'd need that extensive treatment if "nothing is wrong". He was never willing to discuss concerns/questions, answer any, he would get very irritated and talk to ppl as if I wasn't even in the room! Well then he decided to stop some of the therapies saying it was not working. Shortly after my benefits were stopped...I just don't understand how these ppl live with themselves or sleep at night...or more importantly have a medical license at all!! I was completely naive to think that doctors cared for patients.
I unfortunately had to see Dr. F on two separate occasions concerning an IME for an auto insurer. With all my medical info included after 10 minutes he said I was fine. Thank God I had MRI's done the same morning I saw him which clearly stated otherwise to torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders from the accident ( earlier MRI stated the same also) . You never saw someone back peddle so fast on his IME report when confronted with the new info with his amendments to the report. The second time I saw him for a different scenario the same thing occurred. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of not getting an MRI that day because I thought my injuries were obvious to him and anyone who saw me. Not so tho... I think he needs glasses or should retake his Hippocratic oath again to remind himself about why he became a doctor in the first place! If there is anyone seeing him I would recommend for them to retake their test (MRI, x ray, etc) that day before seeing him.....
Best Doc I have ever seen, he was the only one who ever helped me and was there for me at the times I needed him.
