Qualified Medical Examiner / Workers Compensation

I was trained, tested and qualified by the state of California to be a Qualified Medical Examiner, which is a certification in addition to the normal psychologist license. This is a part of the Workers Compensation system in California wherein I prepared reports to assist the Judge in determining the proper disposition of the rights of injured workers to financial assistance when their lives have been disrupted by physical and/or psychiatric trauma.

I discontinued this type of QME work in 2017 due to my dissatisfaction with the frequently tragic delays by the insurance companies in providing psychological care for injured workers, and due to the disrespect I felt, as regards paying my bills, which I experienced from defense attorneys and insurance companies.
