We assist individuals and institutions, plaintiffs and defendants, attorneys, federal agencies, and the courts to evaluate claims for psychiatric damages, disability and fitness for duty.

In the workplace, the occupational/forensic psychiatrist can be an important part of the hiring process. The occupational/forensic psychiatrist may be asked to consider whether a claimed disability is valid and work-related. Additionally, we provide timely services to Employee Assistance Programs.

Organizations can also benefit from an expert consultation evaluating its response strategies to employees, supervisory responsibility, or maintenance of health care standards and American with Disabilities claims (ADA).

We provide occupational and forensic services in the following areas:


  • Employment-related Psychiatric Examinations

  • Psychiatric Evaluation and Risk Assessment

  • Psychiatric Evaluation and Consultation

  • Psychiatric Evaluation for Disability Determination


  • Forensic psychiatric evaluations

  • Independent Medical Examinations (IME)

  • Litigation consultation to assist in case preparation
