For Physicians
Welcome! Thank you for considering Impairment Rating Specialists for evaluating your claim. We offer comprehensive claim evaluations to expedite your claims. Our reports are all reviewed for correctness and compliance with the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment by a California QME/DWC Educator and experience as Certified Independent Medical Evaluators (CIME) with prior educational certificates from the American Board of Independent Medical Evaluators.

We understand that a correct, complete and accurate rating is the cornerstone of effective claim management. A referral to Impairment Rating Specialists reflects your attention to detail and the highest level of professional  claim management, by choosing an independent evaluator to verify impairment and disability for your clients and patients.

If you would like to perform excellent impairment ratings within your own practice, or you would simply like someone to take over the impairment rating altogether, try RateFast, an Impairment Rating Service designed and created by Dr. John Alchemy himself!
