We provide Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs). We schedule all types of evaluations from basic disability through second surgical opinions, Long Term Care Evaluations, fit for work exams, continuation of treatment, peer review and neuropsychological testing. We have provided IME services with every medical specialist from chiropractic to pain management. We make every effort to use different physicians of the same speciality in the same geographical area. This insures impartiality and reduces the chance of possible legal ramifications. As an adjunct to our scheduling services, we will schedule transportation, interpretation and even lodging.
We have a database of over 42,000 providers available to perform services primarily throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Our database is continuously updated with information pertaining to the physician's fee, the quality of the report, and the average time in which the report is completed. We've coordinated over 125,000 medical evaluations globally.
IMEs can be requested via our website, email, phone, mail or fax.
