I provide Nurse Observer services for Independent Medical Examinations (IME) or Defense Medical Examinations (DME) in Boston and surrounding cities.  I will be present at the examination and write a report concerning the results. As a registered nurse, I will also protect your client by precluding any and all tests that you do not wish to be performed or any questions you do not want your client to answer. In addition, I will review and compare the medical report written by the defense doctor and help you focus on the important medical issues.
