Dr. Thomas Lazoff has over 25 years of experience conducting medical legal services such as, independent medical examinations (IME), medical record reviews, and impairment ratings to provide a third-party, objective medical opinion regarding work readiness, job modifications, disability eligibility, and injury claims.
Dr. Lazoff is a physiatrist, a doctor trained to treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. He is double board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Pain Medicine. Dr. Lazoff is a Fellow Member of the International Academy of Independent Medical Evaluators (IAIME) and has maintained this fellowship since early on in his medical practice.
For over 25 years, Dr. Lazoff has provided patients, insurance companies, workers compensation administrators, plaintiff and defensive counsels, and other interested parties with an objective second opinion related to an injured patient’s condition and prognosis. This service has proven to be particularly important in cases involving workers compensation claims, automobile accident injuries, or other incidents that may involve liability issues. Dr. Lazoff is known for providing thorough, organized reports and recommendations for independent medical examinations, medical record reviews, and depositions in a timely manner.
The process starts with an exhaustive physician review of all medical records related to the claim, followed by a thorough physical exam of the patient. Dr. Lazoff then provides a written review and evaluation – a valuable tool that all parties can use in their efforts to come to an appropriate resolution and bring fair closure to the case.
