Vocational Assessment (Expert Opinion)
Based on the comprehensive assessments, medical background review of the client’s history, and an in-person interview, the examining clinician (i.e. Physician, Psychologist, Neuropsychologists, Psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists, and Vocational Rehabilitation Consultants) generates a detailed report with a prognosis, timelines for recovery, treatment recommendations, and expected outcomes of recommended treatment interventions. There are many professionals in our office that are qualified to give expert witness testimony.
