” Plaintiff’s sole appellate contention with respect to defendant’s motion, “that the address used on the IME scheduling letters improperly included an apartment number that does not appear on plaintiff’s claim forms, will not be considered, as it is being raised for the first time on appeal (see Joe v Upper Room Ministries, Inc., 88 AD3d 963 [2011]; Gulf Ins. Co. v Kanen, 13 AD3d 579 [2004]; Mind & Body Acupuncture, P.C. v Elrac, Inc., 48 Misc 3d 139[A], 2015 NY Slip Op 51219[U] [App Term, 2d Dept, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2015])” (Prime Diagnostic Med., P.C. v New York Cent. Mut. Fire Ins. Co., 53 Misc 3d 141[A], 2016 NY Slip Op 51523[U], *1 [App Term, 2d Dept, 2d, 11th & 13th Jud Dists 2016]). “
