Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs)
Comprehensive IME Services
When you have been involved in an accident or injury that prevents you from working, independent medical examinations (IMEs) are a critical step in determining your return-to-work status.
Dr. John E. Baker at Allegiance Orthopedic & Spine Institute performs IMEs in Palm Beach County for patients with injuries to the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, back, or neck. We understand the importance of timely and accurate communication with everyone involved, including patients, employers, case workers, and attorneys.
Our physician provides an objective and comprehensive IME, including a complete review of records, patient history, and physical examination. IMEs can support a variety of needs, including:
- Diagnosis and treatment
- Causal relation clarification
- Medical status evaluation
- Prognosis analysis
- Maximum medical improvement (MMI)
After completing the physical exam and reviewing all medical records, Dr. Baker will outline his findings in a narrative report, including the severity of diagnosis, physical impairments, functionality, restrictions and limitations, disability rating, and treatment recommendations.
We are happy to schedule an IME for you, your employee, or your client at a convenient time and location. Allegiance Orthopedic & Spine Institute has offices in Delray Beach and Boca Raton, Florida.
