  • Dr. Melissa Reigle, MD

    I am from Ohio and I am a "public employee" who would receive "Public Employee's Retirement" when I retire. (which means that I don't pay into Social Security and therefore, cannot apply for SS disability.

    I have been a public employee for 23 years, since the age of 21. My employer suggested that I apply for disability through OPERS because I have been on FMLA for 2 straight years and I am no better.
    So, I applied for it because if I get approved while still employed it will hold my job for 5 years.

    I have an appointment this week for the determination of disability with Dr. Melissa Reigle, MD from Cleveland Ohio. (This is an Independent Medical Examiner.)

    I was hoping that someone on the board would know who she is and maybe that she is aware of IC and actually someone who specializes in it.
    I was told when I scheduled the appointment that she does not just do "disability" approvals, she is a Urologist who sometimes will do these independent medical exams on top of her normal practice.

    Has anyone heard of her, or know anything about her? I tried to do an internet search, but I couldn't find any ties to IC and her name.

    Thanks so much, and Please keep me in your prayers that things go well.
    ~Wishing everyone improved health!

    You, Lord, are all I have,
    and you give me all I need;
    my future is in your hands
