A so-called Independent Medical Examination is NOT independent
- Your client will be more comfortable knowing that you sent an experienced nurse observer to accompany them at their Independent Medical Examination
- This nurse politely, professionally, and (if necessary) assertively interfaces with the examiner and upholds IME Response to Demand stipulations
- You'll get a detailed typed report and CD audio recording of what actually occurred during the independent medical examination and witness testimony, if the need arises to refute inconsistencies in the IME doctor's report

Experienced Independent Medical Examination (IME) Nurse Observer
June 16, 2013 nurse observer Michael Haiby has attended 2615 IMEs
It is not uncommon during an independent medical examination for the doctor to ask unauthorized questions. A report from an IME a few days ago exemplifies this.
How much did it cost to repair your vehicle?
|At this point, the observer (myself) indicated to the doctor that the question was not authorized under the Code of Civil Procedure for Physical Examination, that the client was here to be examined for her injuries—that this was not a deposition.|
|The client did not answer the question|
If I am unavailable for an Independent Medical Examination I receive your assignment information, send an exceptionally well trained and experienced nurse observer, and I forward the report and audio recording to your office upon the conclusion of the IME.
June 16, 2013--My excellent team of nurses have attended 436 IMEs for me.
95 percent of my independent medical examination business is from repeat customers. Please call me and ask me to read to you the list of Los Angeles and Orange County attorneys that I work for on a regular basis. You should know at least one of them and you can call them yourself to verify the excellence of my independent medical examination nurse observer service.
What I focus on is producing a consistently excellent IME nurse observer service for plaintiff attorneys from intake of your assignment, to meeting and briefing your client outside of the defense doctor's office, by insuring your client's position is protected during the independent medical examination itself, and then in producing an accurate (indisputable) IME report and audio recording that will solidify your client's position.
Why are we different?
We have a team of very well trained and experienced nurses to meet your needs--(you will not be told that we have no nurse available for any given date or time)
