Independent Medical Examinations

Brookside Psychologists offers independent medical examinations and insurance evaluations (psychological and neuropsychological assessment).

We accept referrals from a variety of organizations, such as the Ontario Medical Association’s Physicians’s Health Program (OMA PHP), the Ontario Nurses Association, auto insurance companies, and extended health insurance companies.

Often, questions addressed in a psychological or neuropsychological IME include:

  • Fitness to practice medicine
  • Eligibility for long-term disability benefits
  • Whether a treatment plan is reasonable and necessary
  • Whether a claimant has reached maximum medical recovery from a mental health issue or brain injury
  • Determination of permanent and serious impairment
  • Determination of catastrophic impairment
  • Ability to work
  • Accommodations required for work or school

Our Clinical Psychologists provide:

  • Clinical Psychological Assessment
  • Psychoeducational Assessment
  • Mental Health Diagnoses
  • Expert Opinion Regarding Mental Health & Disability Issues
