Sports MedicineThe AZ Sports Medicine team of experts can handle whatever sports injury has you sidelined, whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior. From tennis elbow, runner’s knee, and impingements to strains, sprains, fractures, and exercise-induced asthma. Simple injuries to more complex or chronic conditions such as rotator cuff tears, labral tears, torn meniscus, and problems with plantar fasciitis.

We start with a thorough physical examination and, if needed, use the latest in diagnostic tools to determine your problem. Once we have identified the issue or issues, we develop a personalized treatment plan, focusing on the least invasive approach first. Our goal is to relieve pain, correct the problem, and get you back to playing again as soon as possible.

IME (Independent Medical Exam) & Workers Compensation

Medical Exams (IME)An independent medical exam (IME) is an exam performed by a physician at the request of a referring source, such as an insurer or attorney. Normally, an IME is a one-time exam. IMEs are commonly requested in situations that involve automobile casualty, personal injury, and long-term disabilities, among other scenarios.

An IME physician is not involved in the care of the patient receiving the independent exam. They simply perform the exam and report their own diagnosis and opinions. Since the people reviewing the exam may not have a medical background, a good IME physician needs to be able to convey their findings in a clear and understandable way.
