What is an independent medical examination?

15 Sep, 2020, 4:35 AM

Your appointment with a specialist for a medicolegal opinion is to provide an independent and unbiased opinion after conducting a detailed medical evaluation. The purpose of such an appointment is to provide a comprehensive report to your solicitor. The medicolegal specialist you meet is not your treating doctor and hence he will not be providing any treatment plans or suggestions . Such queries will need to be addressed to your general practitioner or other specialists involved in your treatment.
