Why Us

For over 27 years Western Medical Assessments has been providing Independent Medical Examinations (IMEs) to insurance companies, employers, and lawyers (both defence and plaintiff). Our extensive network of senior medical and paramedical specialists provide the authoritative evidence-based opinions that support optimal outcomes. To maintain our ethical obligations we do not provide any case management or treatment services. WMA’s continual focus on innovation effectively responds to the constantly changing needs of our clients.

Our reputation as one of Canada’s most respected disability assessment companies is premised on our national network of thousands of seasoned clinical experts — mostly specialists — across all medical disciplines (physical and psychological). We’ve been entrusted to facilitate over 65,000 expert opinions, as our clients appreciate our medical direction, evidence-based approach and complete independence from ethical conflicts.
