Designated Doctor Requests

Under Texas workers' compensation law, the opinion of a designated doctor has presumptive weight on issues in which opinion is requested, and significantly influences the direction of a claim.  It is vitally important that insurance carriers and third party administrators provide the designated doctor with not only complete medical records, but also a detailed analysis letter prior to examination.  We use our expertise in workers' compensation law to tailor thorough, specific analysis letters to designated doctors regarding the issues to be addressed.  The high quality of our analysis letters, drafted by Board Certified attorneys, are an effective tool for adjusters to use in maximizing favorable results from the designated doctor process. 

You may complete our online designated doctor request form, or contact us in any manner convenient to you.  Our experienced office staff will follow up to notify you of the appointment date, and will notify you promptly whether the claimant has attended the appointment.  We will also follow up with you to provide the report, along with our attorneys' recommendation for any follow up suggested, such as a letter of clarification.  We provide this service for a flat fee of $375 per request.  We can arrange to pick the file up from your office, or copy it at your office in the Dallas area, for your convenience.  Please see our online form for additional details.
