THe story of USMC James Moore
a Survivor of PTSD TBI several broken bones blownout eardrums after his Vehical hit by an IED in Iraq I was sent to Germany where Doctors there did a great job saving his life and getting him ready for the next step in recovery. He was sent to Colorado springs for recovery and then to Denver's Craig Hospital..after months of treatment they sent to Dr Greg Thwaites in Greeley to get an Neurological evaluation he spent about 45 minutes in the waiting room while this doctor played grabass with his 19 year old techs and then told James Moore that these is no evidence that he is still having PTSD and TBI problems. His medical coverage was denied by the goverment because if this evaluation. James had to pay for his medical treatment by himself and him and his wife and 3 kids became homeless for months while they tried to get another Dr to reevauluate him Finaly Dr Johnson A Neurologist saw them and found that James Moore a vet of both wars in the middle east was indeed in need of emergency medical treatment and was sent to sent to the ER and on 9-11-08 James Moore passed away from his injuries. James Moore was an american hero but was treated like an american fellon by Dr gregg Thwaites (the worst Doctor in america)

George V. Rossie, Ph.D., Clinical & Consulting Psychologist,
R. Daun Gretzinger - IME Administrators, LLC, Denver, Colorado, U.S.A.
Quest 32 - 1998
Many insurance claimants complain, perhaps with good reason, that the "Independent Medical Examinations" (IMEs) upon which their insurers rely to determine benefits are unfair. Insurance company adjusters typically send claimants to medical examiners who can be counted on to issue reports favorable to the insurer's position. Doctors who routinely side with the company can expect to have an unlimited supply of referrals and can expect an appreciable income flow from their efforts.
In Colorado, the practice of certain insurance companies using just a handful of notoriously biased doctors to perform IMEs in auto accident cases became so predictable that those doctors became known by the not-so-affectionate name, "the 'A' Team." Generally, an "A Team" report did not have to be read for one to know its contents and conclusions precisely. For example, one of the members of the "team", a psychiatrist who also sat on the board of directors of a major insurance company, performed over 200 consecutive auto IMEs in a several-year period, without ever finding a single case of emotional or intellectual problem that he could attribute to the motor vehicle accident. The vast majority of patients were labeled "malingerers", and the rest had "pre-existing psychiatric disorders." In at least one case, this included a young man who had crashed his motorcycle into the side of a truck and lay in a coma for two weeks.
Fed up with such abuse, a grass-roots effort to change the way IMEs in Colorado were conducted for auto accidents sprang to life in 1996. The initial driving force behind the effort was a legislative aide to a state senator who had been in an auto accident, and then "re-victimized" when her insurer sent her for IMEs that determined that she was no longer in need of treatment, despite being unable to resume her legislative duties. With the help of several of her therapists, and with the support of the senator, legislation was drafted and introduced into the state legislature which essentially would have prohibited insurance companies from using IMEs at all to determine benefits in auto cases. Prior to the bill's introduction, the therapists had contacted every other treating provider they knew, encouraging them to write or call their own representatives in support of the measure, and also asking them to alert other professionals and victims of IMEs of the effort and the process. The insurance industry's initial attempts to kill the bill were blocked because by that time legislators from all over the state had been barraged by doctors and patients who wrote or called expressing their support for the need of reform, and the bill was allowed to proceed to the committee stage, where public hearings were scheduled. Now, the organizing therapists began enlisting auto accident patients to show up for the hearings to tell their stories of how they had been treated by their insurers. The response was overwhelming, to the point that one critical hearing had to be moved out of the normally used hearing room into an assembly hall to accommodate the huge crowd. Faced with this massive show of opposition, the insurance industry dropped its outright resistance and agreed to work on compromise legislation which they agreed would "dispel the misperception that the IME process was biased."

When good Doctors go Bad

There are some very good data about impaired physicians. We know, for example, that, just like civilians, about 10% of doctors have a problem with alcohol dependence and about 5% have a problem with drugs. With civilians, of course, it is illegal drugs. With doctors, it is legal drugs used illegally. But the numbers are pretty firm. There have been many studies of this. So 15%, I think, is a number that is realistic. In terms of mental illness, we have good information on that also. A recent very excellent study on a large population base showed that 16% of people had a disabling episode of depression at least one time in their life. That is certainly true of physicians. The suicide rate, as you may know, is higher in physicians than in civilians, so it may well be that our mental illness problem is even greater, but there is certainly no reason to think it is less.
In this case it sounds like money the root of all evil has made Dr Gregory A Thwaites what he is today. We try and keep up with the jones and we end up hating what we have become or others that respected us no longer like us for what we have become. It has a great effect on childern and in the end they will pay the price of our greed.

The Doctor that desides to become an IME's for the Insurance companys has sold his Medical degree to the insurance company. Opinions by IME's are only opinions and not fact. They should never carry the weight of the treating Doctor. Its sad to here that some of these Doctors that had so much potential sold out.

Ever run into that one guy you wish you never screwed with? That guy that is never going to forget what you did? That guy that makes you look over your shoulder when your out and about? Every time you hear something wrong with your car it makes you think, could he would he? I was once that guy was taken advanage by a Window repair company I waited days weeks until I got paybacks I would have waited years but It was always in the back of my mind. They did get me for about a 100 bucks but in the end it cost them thousands to repair the water damage. I was once that guy!
sounds like this Doctor has found that guy..
Moral of the story is .. If you screw with someone it better be worth it because its something they will never forget.

I once had a horible neck injury in a car crash its a challenge every step of the way make sure you get the best care you can, find a support group ask questions , learn what you can you are your own best expert on what you need we don't fit a specific mold, we are as different as the stars.
Not only do we find ourself fighting the injury but the bad Doctors that are only out to make money off you. I was also a victim of An IME he tried to sentence me to life in a wheel chair by reporting that I was not in need of this treatment but I never gave up. i have the use of my legs and now kick the IME in the ass as much as I can. God bless this mess

Why would anyone ever agree to go to an Insruance companys doctor? There just going to write up some crazy story. Going to the Doctors is not something we enjoy so going to a doctor that is not going to help you is crazy?
They disrespect you in a doctors report all you can do is return the favor file a crazy report with the State Medical board..

What a waist of a Medical degree. You pend all this money to learn how to treat injured people and then use your degree to harm them? These Doctors should have to show on there front door how much of there practice is Insurance medical exam's and how much is really there to help someone. Everyone has the right to know whos treating them someone that cares about your health or someone that only cares about puting a new wing on there home.

You get what you give, You write horrible reports to gain a few buck and more work thrown your way by the insruance companys. And then you cry when someone writes the same about you! The only differance is the IME just moves on to the next victim.

Before going to a Doctors check to see if they are and have been doing IME's for insurance companys!

Independent medical exams are a game, and a perniciously evil one at that. These IME doctors make vast amounts of money, testifying 99 percent of the time on behalf of the defense. They almost always minimize the personal injuries or damages to the plaintiff based upon one-time,15-minute exams.

These IME doctors Ie Dr Gregory Thwaites are, if anything, more outlandish than in most other states. The main insurance company defense strategy seems to be to turn to IMEs now more aggressively than ever - so they can find “nothing wrong” with seriously injured accident victims. these doctors use terms like "This patient is a malingerer" no evidence that this Patient is in need of treatment.
Doctors that perform IME for insurance companys often claim they are very involoved in giving back to there communities in which they serve. They give freely of their time to participate in professional organizations and to assist patients who would otherwise be unable to receive care.

The fact is these Doctors are taking more from the communities than they could ever give back.
stealing the health from sevral Patient and giving some help to one is not giving back to your community. Its still Medical Malpractice.
Channel 9 news has been looking into doing a story on IME's in colorado and if you have infor that you would like to send them send it to matt.flener@9news.com
Its time we get rid of these Doctors that get rich on false reports. Also I will display my blog site soon showing all the Horrible Doctors that have harmed victims here in Colorado
