RIOS and STEINHARDT, JJ
The order, insofar as appealed from as limited by the brief, granted defendants' motion for summary judgment.
ORDERED that the order, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed without costs.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, defendants moved for summary judgment dismissing the complaint and plaintiff cross-moved for summary judgment. The Civil Court granted defendants' motion for summary judgment and implicitly denied plaintiff's cross motion for summary judgment. As limited by its brief, plaintiff appeals from so much of the order as granted defendants' motion for summary judgment.
The sole issue raised by plaintiff on appeal is whether defendants established that plaintiff's assignor failed to appear for scheduled independent medical examinations (IMEs). Contrary to plaintiff's contention, the affidavit submitted by the doctor who was to perform the IMEs of plaintiff's assignor established that the assignor failed to appear for IMEs in the doctor's office, which was located at the address set forth in the IME scheduling letters (see Stephen Fogel Psychological, P.C. v Progressive Cas. Ins. Co., 35 AD3d 720 ). Consequently, the order, insofar as appealed from, is affirmed.
Pesce, P.J., Rios and Steinhardt, JJ., concur. Decision
