You're about to save yourself hours and hours of research looking for independent medical review companies and other companies who provide file review and independent medical examination referrals. You're in the right place. If you sign up for the Reviews & IME's email list you'll get a free sample of 10 referral source companies. If you look below you'll see where you can purchase a detailed directory of over 365 companies who provide referrals and non-clinical career opportunities. Thanks again for coming!

My name is Dr. Todd Finnerty and I'm a psychologist in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to authoring the free Reviews & IME's newsletter (and the annual Reviews & IME's book/directory), I'm also a file review consultant and perform a few IME's per month.

If you have questions email me at toddfinnerty@toddfinnerty.com or call me on my cell at (330)495-8809. I also know a large number of physicians from various specialties as well as psychologists and neuropsychologists. Some have given me their address for the mailing list so I'll know their location as well in case you're looking for a provider near them. I would be happy to help connect you with providers interested in performing file reviews and/or IME's. If you're a physician or a psychologist-- please join our free community (learn more below).

Here you can also find hundreds of referral sources for medical records file reviews and IME's

Dr. Todd Finnerty publishes a book on Reviews & IME's that includes a large directory of referral sources for medical records reviews and independent medical examinations. The directory gets updated each year so it stays current. There are referral sources for independent medical examinations as well as peer reviews related to disability claims, utilization reviews, quality improvement and other issues.

What we're up to

I have two simple goals for the future of our community:

Psychologists & Physicians: Learn about work you may enjoy

I write about medical records file review work and independent medical examinations. I personally specialize in file review on disability claims. As a child I liked puzzles; as an adult I get paid to solve them. I love what I do. In my work you first search out the pieces to the puzzle and then you get to put them together to create a clear picture of how someone is functioning.

Give a referral source-- get ALL of the referral sources

This is an ANNUAL publication that will be updated every year. When you get the list of referral sources/ potential employers in the book look them over. If you know of any companies or other organizations that belong in the directory please email that source or sources to toddfinnerty@toddfinnerty.com. I will then send you the expanded list for next year, with all of the new sources we've found together, for free. That way by giving a referral source(s), you get all of the new referral sources others have sent in for next year for free.

Psychologists and Physicians: Are you interested in discussing opportunities to perform medical records file reviews and IME's (Independent Medical Exams)? We have some networking opportunities for you:

Our Referral Source List is More Extensive and Less Expensive

You may have heard about a big conference organizer called SEAK . They are offering a great service. We are not affiliated with them and do not currently organize live conferences. SEAK offers a once-a-year live workshop where you pay to travel to Florida and get a hotel and pay as much as $1,395 for the workshop. It is called "How to Start, Build and Run a Successful Disability and File Review Practice." Their CME workshop includes a list of file review referral sources. If you want to attend this once-per-year workshop that is an option for you. SEAK advertises a list of "100 prime referral sources for file review work" if you travel to their $1,000+ conference. However, you could also purchase the Reviews & IME's book and get an even larger list of file review referral sources and sources for IME's for just $99.95. Our list is more extensive and now has over 365 organizations-- that is like a referral source for every day of the year.

Is that online directory worth it?
A number of people asked me if it was worth it to pay for SEAK's file review directory. I think that is an individual decision. So many asked that I decided to send out a quick survey in July, 2016 of 500+ people listed on their directory. I asked them 3 questions. Here is the data that I got back so you can be the judge yourself.
