Regarding Gurvey's comments about the doctor's best interests, he seems to forget and/or significantly discount the fact that MTUS, ACOEM, ODG and other guidelines are based on research and peer review - not one physician. Sure, I get the benefits of a physical exam to persuade an opinion but really, why can't this be better documented with a discussion as to why this patient doesn't fit into the norm?

As for Young, his reference to doctor-sanctioned care assumes no of us remember the time when the physician was presumed to be correct. This was a boon to applicant attorneys as costs skyrocketed, injuries enveloped other pre-existing, disability was through the roof, TTD was almost endless; businesses closed and left CA; and, of course, attorneys collected the highest in fees ever. Ya that worked out well. I'm curious why the writer chose not to include the opinion of a defense attorney in the story considering she used multiple applicant attorneys.

Instead of 60 tablets - you only need 5 & there's nothing you can do to rebutt this?
