Disability exams are performed at the request of a third party to obtain unbiased medical certification to short or long term disability due to a work-related injury. All physicians are certified independent medical examiners by the American Board of Medical Specialties. The examination can be tailored to the needs of the third party, but typically includes a medical history, evaluation, diagnoses, a medical treatment plan, and prognosis for future care or recovery.
- Laboratory tests to confirm diagnosis
- Interpretation of ancillary medical tests to confirm diagnosis
- Direct communication between third parties and the treating physicians
