The team at Comprehensive Diagnostic Center streamlines and oversees every step of the IME process including scheduling, medical record processing, and report distribution. This allows for a faster and more efficient resolution of claims. We are experts at finding the correct board-certified physician in order to evaluate the cause, extent, and medical treatment of a work-related or other injury where liability is at issue; Our team of physicians will also provide an opinion as to whether an individual has reached maximum medical improvement from treatment; and the potential for return to work at full duty or modified duty.
