Workers’ Compensation Appointments

To request a workers’ compensation appointment with one of Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic doctors, we ask that the employer or insurance carrier complete the workers’ compensation information sheet and fax to 919-863-6809. Once the form is received, we will contact the requesting party to schedule an appointment at a convenient time.

For questions or concerns regarding workers’ compensation appointments, please contact our Workers’ Compensation Hotline: 919-863-6804.

Independent Medical Exams (IME) and Second Opinions

Occasionally an Independent Medical Exam or Second Opinion is necessary to provide the appropriate treatment to the injured worker. A “special exam” is required if the patient’s date of injury exceeds two months and they have been treated by another specialist (orthopaedist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, physiatrist, podiatrist, etc.). The injured worker’s medical records will be reviewed before scheduling an appointment.

To schedule an IME or Second Opinion, the workers’ compensation information sheet must be completed and all relevant medical records faxed to 919-863-6809 .  If medical records exceed 30 pages, you may mail them to:
