“I am a Medical Case Manager/Rehabilitation Counselor and recently found the SEAK IME Directory online and contacted a listed Orthopaedic member, for an IME in Asheville, NC. It regarded a Claimant in a workers' comp claim which originated in Pennsylvania. The Claimant subsequently relocated to North Carolina, necessitating finding an Orthopaedist out of state for an IME. Hence, the usefulness of the Directory.
