SERVICES

Second Opinion Medicine

As a provider of Second Opinion Medicines Services, I provide the following service:

  • a consultation with the worker

  • initial telephone feedback to the worker’s treating GP after the consultation

  • a short 1-2 page, clinically focused, written consultation summary containing advice

       and recommendations for improving patient recovery and functioning.

This service is conducted at my consulting rooms in Kent Town, Mount Barker and McLaren Vale.

Patient Management

My main focus is assisting individuals with musculoskeletal disability, associated with workplace claims or road traffic accidents, maximise their function by ensuring accurate diagnosis, tailored treatment and, wherever possible, working with the person to achieve a safe, sustainable return to rewarding and good work.

I provide an urgent patient management service to GP's, orthopaedic/neurosurgeons and other

referrers.

​Independent Medical Examination

An Independent Medical Examination (IME) is a comprehensive and impartial analysis of the medical

status of an individual, for medicolegal purposes or as part of an occupational health management

process. Examination findings may include, but are not limited to, an opinion regarding:

  • diagnosis and prognosis

  • injury/illness causative factors

  • capacity for work

  • current treatment and/or future treatment

I am accredited to provide IMEs for:

Permanent Impairment Assessment

An impairment assessment is undertaken if a worker has a

permanent impairment resulting from a work injury.

When the work injury has stabilised, the worker's case

manager will discuss referral to an accredited

impairment assessor.

My role as a permanent impairment assessor will determine:

  • whether the injury has reached maximum medical improvement

  • whether the worker's injury has resulted in an impairment

  • whether the impairment is permanent

  • the degree of whole person impairment resulting from the work injury.
