Independent Medical Examination


Independent Medical Examination is an important service to the public as well as the legal community.

An important function of IME’s is to identify malingerers whose abuse of the "system" ends up costing all of us more money in the form of higher insurance premiums.

A second function of the IME is to independently review the merits of potential litigation cases.  Dr. Souviron is called upon to evaluate damages and determine permanence or lack there of. Cases without merit choke the courts and again cost the community as well as the principals involved, time and expense.

A third function of the IME is to assure appropriate determination of disability from trauma and or malpractice, as insurance payments and jury awards are linked to damages.
