Medical Legal Work

Peer Reviews

Peer Reviews are paper-based evaluations prepared by Dr. Shakov to provide an informed expert opinion about the appropriateness of care, medical necessity and related issues. The review type, prospective, current, retrospective, medical-legal, or appeal, is specified by the client, including whether physician peer to physician discussions are required. All medical records are collected and questions prepared for the physician reviewer. Final reports are quality assured, tailored to meet state-specific content and turn around time requirements.
