Meet the Providers:

Our physicians are active, practicing doctors with an average of 20 years of patient experience, so they know how to present complicated situations in layman’s terms. They know the vocabulary needed to get the point across to an audience untutored in medical terminology — yet also know the importance of those words in appearing experienced, authoritative, and knowledgeable.

Relaxed and confident in front of an audience, most of our physicians are also proficient speakers, having given many presentations to the national academic and medical communities about their areas of expertise. They have the respect of their peers, having been published in peer-reviewed journals and contributed chapters to textbooks used in medical education throughout the country.

Our IME+ doctors have led medical exams on NFL drafts; served on the medical staffs of NHL teams; been critical members of the medical teams for major university sports, treating professional, Olympic and NCAA Division I athletes; acted as team physicians for local school districts; and been chiefs of staff at major medical centers.

When you work with IME+, you work directly with the physician you need. There is no intermediary, so communication is barrier-free. You have the focused attention of the doctor, with no third-party management; this physician will be committed to providing you with the expert evaluation you require.
