Consult Only Services

Dorothy can usually schedule web or phone consults with a 1-2 weeks’ notice. Her typical consult services include:
– watch the DVD of an opposing expert’s physical, psychological or psychiatric examination.
– compare that examination to the expert’s report and provide feedback to include:
(1) which physical tests the doctor claimed he performed, but were never done;
(2) what abnormal findings existed in the exam and how they were misrepresented;
(3) what the expert should have done and did not;
(4) how the expert misrepresented the test or exam. See example.
– advise your attorney and firm what tests/evaluations may be necessary to help prove your client’s case.
– discuss weaknesses which may exist in your own expert’s report.
