Medical Evaluations are performed from any number of MEMSCO office locations, you're own office, and/or by virtual telemedicine appointments when the parties agree. The DWC allows for each Qualified Medical Evaluator ("QME") to register up to ten (10) office locations. MEMSCO will perform a detailed analysis to determine by specialty where the best area's appear to office. Best could be defined as what works for you or what's closest to home for the injured worker. MEMSCO will gladly provide its opinion and experience making these selections.
