Neurosurgery Independent Medical Exams, Spinal Medicine Independent Medical Exams
My patients are essentially adult men and women with degenerative, traumatic, congenital and oncologic (as in cancer related) spine and musculo-spinal pathologies. For many years I have evaluated WC injuries, traffic and sport injuries. My services include conservative and surgical treatments, prompt IME reports, disability ratings using AMA guidelines, medical reviews and deposition conferences. My focus when working as a spine/neurosurgical expert is to read, analyze, respond to questions and give as much as possible an objective evaluation without favoring one party over another. Office staff is easy to work with and knowledgeable in facilitating work flow. I have attended SEAK training in November 2017.
