Client Satisfaction

Both Client and Patient are Impressed

Very impressed with how your office handled all patients. The office was overloaded due to a number of emergency cases. Dr. Gilmore ran about an hour behind, however; the office notified all patients in the waiting area.

Dr. Gilmore reviewed all the records, actually touched my Claimant, examined and asked where most of the pain existed. Believe it or not that is not often the case in this field. All questions regarding RTW, MMI, Causality answered as closely as possible and Dr. Gilmore even increased the weight limits for lifting which really helped in this case. Kelly also deserves kudos for her assistance and politeness. The patient too is impressed with Dr. Gilmore which makes a difference.
