Kopelevich & Feldsherova, P.C. (Galina Feldsherova, Esq.), for appellant. Bruno, Gerbino & Soriano, LLP (Mitchell L. Kaufman, Esq.), for respondent.
Appeal from an order of the Civil Court of the City of New York, Kings County (Robin Kelly Sheares, J.), entered October 28, 2014. The order granted defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with $25 costs.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff appeals from an order of the Civil Court which granted defendant's motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint.
Contrary to plaintiff's contention, the proof submitted by defendant established that plaintiff had failed to appear for duly scheduled examinations under oath (see Stephen Fogel Psychological, P.C. v Progressive Cas. Ins. Co., 35 AD3d 720 ; Ortho Prods. & Equip., Inc. v Interboro Ins. Co., 41 Misc 3d 143[A], 2013 NY Slip Op 52054[U] [App Term, 2d Dept, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2013]). Furthermore, "the failure to set forth the dates of the scheduled examinations in the denial of claim form[s] did not render the denial[s] conclusory, vague, or without merit as a matter of law" (Quality Psychological Servs., P.C. v Avis [*2]Rent-A-Car Sys., LLC, 47 Misc 3d 129[A], 2015 NY Slip Op 50378[U], *1 [App Term, 2d Dept, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2015]). Plaintiff's remaining contentions lack merit or were raised for the first time on appeal.
Accordingly, the order is affirmed.
