At you request, the patient was examined today at my XYZ Third Avenue, New York, New York office for the purposes of an Independent Medical Examination. Mr. Rosenberg presented with valid photo identification. My report is as follows:

HISTORY OF ACCIDENT:

According to the patient, he was a passenger, not wearing his seat belt, when he was involved in an automobile accident with a bus. He states that the vehicle he was in was struck in the front driver's side. He denies a loss of consciousness, fractures or lacerations. Following the accident, he went by ambulance to Lenox Hill Hospital where he was evaluated, given x-rays and released that day.

Subsequently, he went to XYZ Orthopedics for treatment of neck pain, lower back pain and left leg pain. He began physical therapy three times per week. He reports that the treatment was not helping and he stopped receiving the treatment about 3 months ago.

He states that he has not been re-hospitalized for any injuries related to this accident. He reports he has not treated with any other doctors.

PRESENT COMPLAINTS:

The patient reports that he has present complaints of pain associated with his lower back.

PAST MEDICAL HISTORY:

He denies any previous serious conditions or surgery. He also denies any prior motor vehicle accidents or injuries. He takes no medication other than Advil for headaches not associated with this accident.

OCCUPATIONAL HISTORY AND CURRENT JOB STATUS:

At the time of this accident, the patient claims to have worked in sales part-time. He returned to work initially, and is now retired. He states he spends most of his time gardening, reading and relaxing at home with his family.

ORTHOPEDIC EXAMINATION:

Physical Examination:

On physical exam today, I found the patient to be alert, cooperative and well oriented to person, place and time. His communication skills, recent and remote memory, insight and judgment, affect and mood are well within normal limits. He is able to follow commands and cooperate with the examination. My objective findings as related to his injuries are as follows:
