Q:
Why Can't I treat with the AME/PQME (Med-Legal Evaluator)?

A:

Med Legal doctors do not do the treating, they only provide a Medical Legal opinion on your medical status, which aides your attorney in being able to further work up your case towards settlement.  Their role is to provide an objective opinion on your industrial injury, which is different than the role of a treating physician whose primary role is to treat your industrial injury.  They are selected for this purpose because of their unique experience and skills.
