One Star

I had to see him because of a law firm that represents the ins.company of the employer I agree with the first comment how did he get so much information from 10 minutes and on his report he said nothing changed from his initial prognosis the only problem with that is I hadnt seen him yet and hadn't had my hearing with the ALJudge yet and thats where I signed the release forms so that lawyer could access my medical files how do you make a determination on a person without access to the person or there medical records????????? he did the same thing also about ask a question - you start to answer-he butts in with another question-and then turns around and repeats the previous question which I don't think he liked me because after that happened twice I just stopped talking he got upset and said I was required to answer and I asked if our session was being recorded he said no and I said whats the point in answering questions if your not going to listen to the answer??????? he said he was listening and I said is that why you ask the same questions his office was not a clinic it looked more like the entryway into Fort Knox 2 chairs and a coat rack no magazines and cameras in the corners of the room pretty weird I had to have 2 rotor cuff surgeries and his determination was my employer was not liable because the injury I sustained was healed in 7 days and said the surgery wasn't necasarry and the rotor cuff was just age related!!! I would think that if Dr.Rawal went in there twice and signed the paper with information I had to submit for my appeal when my workmanship comp. was denied I'm sure if it was age he would of said so instead of saying it was because of my fall worst part is the employer is a church and there as crooked as that doctor

Hip Replacement Disaster.

He did full hip replacement and I have never had a pain free day since. Worse decision I ever made. I wish I knew you could look up Dr ratings before surgery. Never trust a 2 star Dr. I already need my "new" hip replaced. He ruined my life

This man should have his license revoked. I had to see him for a workman’s comp claim that they requested. I was rear ended Iin my work vehicle (I am a home health nurse) the driver was going 15-20 miles an hour. I felt ok at the time of the accident but the next day I woke up with a stiff neck that got worse. I saw my doctor and I was diagnosed with whiplash, a concussion, cervical sprain and trapezius sprain and jaw sprain. I went to therapy twice a week for 4 months and had dry needling, neck traction and tens treatment done. I also saw a pain and rehab doctor and was given steroid injections on two separate occasions and Botox on another occasion. I went to the IME with Lemon and his report pretty much said I didn’t have enough damage on my car to have pain still, or at all. I said the day of the accident I was ok, I am magnifying my symptoms and pretty much that I have somatic complaints. He said I do not need anymore treatment effective the day of his exam and I am perfectly fine. All this from a what was maybe 7 minute exam. I haven’t found out anything from my workman’s comp insurance yet but only just read his report today! He is a fraud and a liar and I would steer clear of him.
