Hi
Has anyone had any experience with Dr Colin Bennett of
Manurewa, Auckland for an IMA. He's not on ACC latest list but he is still an IMA..
Is he a toadie? Is he ok with OOS?

good morning Forestry morning.

You are asking which assessor is good or not good. You will notice that there is no replies as you could be a case manager looking for a quick buck. It is pointless going through each and every name that you have until you find the one that has a repertation to EXIT claimants.

You will be better off in deciding one close to you and getting your documentation ready. Remember that OOS is not always seen so it better to get a real toadie and supply a written documentation that going to a good assessor with no information.

If you do delay the ACC can cut you off under section 72 for not choosing an assessor.

case managers are know to come in here and ask questions to help with exiting. Asking which assessor to go ti and then not taking that advice means that you are not looking for a good assessor.

I have heard through my GP that you need to be able to PROVE visible physical damage in order to have an OOS claim accepted - how anyone does this I do not know and neither did my GP

Good luck !

Forestry, sorry you were treated so rudely by a long term Forum member.
I cannot see anything wrong with your request for info and that is what this forum is all about.
Sorry I cannot help with the Doctor, but OOS or a gradual process injury is very hard to prove.

Do you have epicondylitis? That is virtually Tennis elbow?
I hope you can get a good report from your Specialist and GP to take with you as ACC have been cows to some OOS sufferers that I know!
Good luck and I hope someone knows this Doctor.Take a support person wont you!

Forestry and Sparrow......a good Massage Therapist would be able to give you at least some short term relief and maybe even long term releif by use of pressure release. Certainly worth a look at. All those darned overused muscle fibers inflammed and very tense.....if the tension can be somewhat releived in the area, a lot of the excess pain can be resolved.

IMHO Gloria

sparrow this is a long term claimant that wants to stay on the circle as long as possible. I was trying to get this person to stop going around in circles and make sure that they are going forward.
She has already been informed that she can go to any assessor who she chooses, but ACC will still send them to there choosen assessor.

I know of another success by taking a written documentation to the assessor. They took documentation showing the level of incapacity to each job. They also pointed out that each of the work trails failed as the jobs were unsustainable. There was no employment offer at the end of each work trail showing that the employer is not interested in employing persons with injuries.

A few years ago I was sent to this surgery by Social Welfare, I was meant to see is wife but was ambushed at the counter by Colin Bennett, normally I would have said I did not want to see him and would go back to SW and ask to be booked with a woman doctor, anyway I had plans for a life change at the time and didn't expect to need another form so decided to get it out of the way and go ahead - big mistake.....

He didn't ask me anything, he, apparently already knew it all even though I had never met him before and only seen his wife once. He then proceeded to quote the bible at me, then some prayers .... it was bizarre to say the least. I was totally taken aback..... as an atheist I was upset, shocked and offended.

Once I left and got my senses back I became furious to have been spoken to like that, I drove straight to social welfare to report what had happened, I then went home a typed a statement which I sent to SW and the medical complaints people.

To their credit SW were all over it, I suspect not because of me, but they must have realised if he had done his 'christian' thing to a muslim (or person from another religion) there could have been a right scandal. By the way he decided I should return to work (without discussing my situation at all) so SW sent me to another doctor who did sign me off work, I was under the impression that SW would not be sending people to him again.

Unsurprisingly the medical council did NOTHING . yep that's right NOTHING ..... their excuse .... he wasn't working as a doctor at the time .....

Sometimes I wish I had pursued it and asked what he was working as - a truck driver perhaps. I left it because we all know complaints to these kind of outfits are a waste of time.

So unless you want christian prayers with your consult avoid this place.
