Dr Lawrence Blumberg used by AIG

Dr Lawrence Blumberg or MCN Info Please

I am asking in this forum as well as the federal forum because MCN is from Oregon or Washington. MCN(Medical Consultants Network) set up a second opinion appointment for me. I live in the Tampa Bay area and they flew Dr Lawrence Blumberg in from Miami. He refused to look at the reports I brought, did not look at me, was rude and confrontational, rushed through an exam, my total time with him was 11 minutes. He looked at one film out of 7 or 8 and held it up to the ceiling light(there was no light box in the massage room). The door to the exam room which was at a massage business was open the entire time and his assistant stood in the doorway the entire time. (I was the only “patient” there, in fact the door was locked when I arrived) Neither the doctor or his assistant were in medical clothes. I have 3 cervical vertebrae that are fused, aherniated disc and numerous other problems in my neck documented on the mri, myelgram, cat scan and he found nothing wrong. Any help or info on Blumberg or MCN would be helpful. MCN just got a 13 million dollar contract to set second opinion appointments for the southest owcp. They also do northwest owcp, ny and wash dc.

This was crossposted from Workers Compensation Insurance

Have any of the injured contractor workers been sent to second opinions, in Florida or other states,to Dr Lawrence Blumberg? Are they being routed through the doctor broker MCN (Medical Consultants Network)? Blumberg has testified for aig before.

    This website is operated by people who don’t get paid a dime for doing so, its just people power driven by supreme injustice.

    Now this is what you do to research Dr Blumberg in a DOL context: go to and hit the search box and go do basic research and don’t be discouraged if they throw 4000 hits at you, just narrow the search and be prepared to spend many days reading before you get results. and don’t forget the BRB section. It works in the end.

    good luck, my friend

  2. If it will help you please check out my website to see how the doctor’s used by insurance companies have a pattern of ignoring life threatening medical conditions, and they also engage in many violations like those you have mentioned. The cases on my website are disability cases governed by U.S. Title 29, but it’s obvious the insurance companies are using the exact same deadly tactics to avoid payment to injured war zone contractors and also injured workers in America.
