Hi Jim, I’m scheduled for a tele C&P exam for knee and back problems. How will they be able to do the range of motion? Should I cancel and do in person exam? Should I be worried! Thank you for your reply!

No, there's nothing to be worried about. I wouldn't ever suggest rescheduling a C & P exam, once the examiner has you on the schedule any changes can get you lost in the system.

It's the job of the examiner to figure out how to do range of motion (ROM) if it's necessary. That's not your problem unless you're denied and then you can ask about the ROM and use of a goniometer on appeal.

Any time we're scheduled for C & P, it's best to go with the flow and don't interrupt the process. Good luck!
