California Medical Evaluators Expands its Network of Psychiatric Expert Witnesses

October 30, 2019

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 30, 2019--

Requests for Psychiatric IMEs and Psychiatric Expert Witnesses have been on the rise in California recently. In order to meet the high demand, California Medical Evaluators (CME) is actively recruiting psychiatry experts to add to its network of board-certified, highly credentialed physicians. CME has been primarily focused on the Greater Los Angeles Area but is now expanding to service the entire state.

A Psychiatric IME is generally requested by an attorney, employer or insurance company for the purpose of evaluating an individual’s mental state. Psychiatry experts focus on such conditions as depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, substance abuse disorders, PTSD, addiction, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

When choosing a psychiatry expert for an IME or Expert Witness Engagement, you should consider choosing a physician who is board-certified and has credentials from well-respected schools. It is best to choose a psychiatrist who has been in practice for a few years and preferably one who has some research experience associated with the condition being evaluated.

Dr. Maged Botros and Dr. Micah Hoffman are two experienced psychiatry experts in the Los Angeles area. Both doctors attended top tier schools and have extensive experience performing Psychiatry IMEs as well as other types of medical-legal work. CME’s psychiatry experts are available for QMEs, AMEs, Medical Records Review, and Fitness for Duty Evaluations in addition to IMEs and Expert Witness Engagements.
