ABOUT OUR INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS
At Respiratory Consultants of Houston, PA our highest priority is to provide high-quality state-of-the-art clinical care for our patients. However, we are also aware that providing second medical opinions by performing independent medical evaluations can be an important contribution to society such as in the context of workers' compensation or other medical-legal settings.

On a case-by-case basis, the physicians at Respiratory Consultants of Houston, PA will perform independent medical examinations, irrespective of the source of referral. Our opinions are grounded on good clinical judgment, sound science, objectivity, honesty and integrity, with the goal of providing credible information that assists our legal system in these cases.

As a general principle, physicians at Respiratory Consultants of Houston, PA abide by guidelines established by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, entitled Ethical Guidelines for Occupational and Environmental Medicine Expert Witnesses, the full text of which can be found on the web at http://www.acoem.org/guidelines.aspx?id=3874.
