(IME) Independent Medical Exam is an evaluation to resolve questions pertaining to one’s medical condition. We provide an objective, comprehensive assessment which includes a detailed history of treatment, a review and summarization of records, and a complete physical examination of the patient. These reports play an important role in worker’s compensation claims, personal injury litigation, and long-term disability claims.

Peer to Peer – Our Board-Certified physicians review medical records and reach out to treating physicians to have a case discussion to determine whether appropriate care was given.

Medical Record Review – Our highly skilled physicians review, interpret, and analyze medical records received to identify discrepancies, primary factors of causation and whether or not the Standard of Care has been met.
