NOTICE TO MY PATIENTS:

Free E-BookA Recent Discovery Reveals An Injury Is Being Missed 45% Of The Time In Auto Accidents That May Constitute Malpractice And Severely Damage The Injury Claim And Your Health.

I am a member of a select group of chiropractic doctors expertly trained and certified in cervical ligament injuries, concussions and vertebral fractures. I am a contributing author along with several of my peers as we gather at training and collaborate together to create educational material and research for our patients and legal representatives. Impact forces produce complex injury syndromes and our aim is help patients and plaintiff's attorneys to better understand the mechanism of the forces that cause injury to the cervical spine and head during impact.

Your Medical Records Are The Insurance Company’s Primary Source Of Data Which They Use To Determine Your Settlement Value. One Of The Single Most Important Considerations That Determine Your Settlement Value Comes From “value Drivers” Insurance Companies Use To Determine Settlement Values. These Drivers Must Be Known By The Doctor And Represented In Your Medical Notes & Records, Which Should Be Taken On Each Visit From Your Doctor Which Is Then Submitted To The Insurance Companies. There Are Some 20 Value Drivers And Areas Of Medical Notes Regarding Your Injuries & Symptoms That Should Be Recorded On Each Visit. A Lot Of Your Settlement Value Weighs Upon Your Doctors Knowledge Of And Ability To Document These Areas Of Findings On Each Visit. When A Health Care Provider Misses These Vital Areas Of Daily Documentation, Takes Inadequate Or Poor Notes, Fails To Give An Impairment Rating, Doesn’t Record Duties Under Duress Or Loss Of Enjoyment, Or Fails To Use Correct Terminology & Format, Your Full Settlement Value May Not Be Given To Your Claim.

The Insurance Company Software Programs Determine The Value Of The Settlement And If The ''drivers' Are Not Included In Your Representation, You Lose The Value.

The Accumulation Of The Specific Data We Discussed Above, When Presented To The Insurance Company In The Correct Terminology & Format, Translates Into Severity Points In The Insurance Industry Software Interpretation, Which Then Translates Into Dollars Based On Each Insurer’s Rate Or Formula.

Our Office Prides Itself On Providing An Exceptional Service Both To And For The Injured Patient. We Are A Facility That Is Knowledgeable In Today’s Environment Of Auto Accident Injury Diagnoses, Treatment, Documentation And Representation. We Use Up To Date Knowledge Which We Gain Through The Accident Works of America Consumer Advocate Program By Voluntarily Taking Post Graduate Training In This Environment, Following Up With Webinars And/or Live Seminars. You Deserve The Right To Be Evaluated And Represented To The Fullest. If You Don’t Know Your Rights, You Lose Them.

We Use This Knowledge To Provide A Complete Care System For You, Not Only To Help With Pain Relief And Return You To Pre-injury Status, But To Document Your Injuries To Assist You To Obtain The Highest Settlement Value.

If We Cannot For Any Reason Help You With Your Problem, Then We Will Kindly Refer You In The Right Direction For Care.
