Health First’s network of Physician Specialists are at the cutting edge of their respective areas of expertise. The combination of professional background, expertise, and years of clinical experience sets the foundation for medical assessment reports that are unparalleled. Objective and defensible medical opinions are presented in clear, concise reports, which are prepared within timelines specific to each case and in adherence with the rules of court.
An IME comprises a comprehensive medical assessment from which a detailed report is produced. The examination includes a review of the medical documents provided, an interview to determine details regarding the examinee’s health status, occupation, education and social history, in addition to a physical examination. Further information is gathered with the administration of questionnaires to determine the examinee’s rating/experience of pain and perception of disability.
The Independent Medical Examination report includes detailed discussion of diagnosis, causation, prognosis for recovery, prognosis for ability/capacity for return to work, recommendations for future treatment or for further intervention.
We ensure strict quality control of IME reports with support and consultation of professionals in medical-legal report writing.
Independent Psychiatric Evaluations
An Independent Psychiatric Evaluation is a detailed medical examination carried out by a Board Certified Psychiatrist.
