In essence, you are asking what happens if the employer's doctor provides a different opinion than your own?
yes,than what my doctor says
In Maryland, this is not always clear. You are entitled to your own doctors opinion.
The employer can contest that if there provider has a differing opinion. You can wind up needing to take the issue up in court. The two opinions would need to be supported by the provides at that point.
The answer is that you are entitled to your own providers opinion.
should I go to this doctor the insurance is sending me for the IME?
The insurer and employer are entitled to have you see their provider.
Do think I need a lawyer in this case
You would only need a lawyer if that provider gives a different opinion than your provider and the employer or insurer acts only on their provider's opinion.
