hat We Do

PDC offers customized Services designed to enhance our clients' understanding of complex disability claims. Our network of Independent Medical Examination providers, psychiatric (IME) and medical (IME) and Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) professionals assess the level of impairment relative to a claimant's capacity to work. Through our Peer Review service, clinicians who are experts in their field respond to questions and provide opinions on the extent to which a psychiatric or medical condition may impact functioning.

The Specialized Psychiatric Assessment Network (SPANSM) psychologists conduct face to face interviews and address the clinical, motivational, situational and occupational issues germane to a disability claim. Our Training Program involves multiple clinical and claim workshops that are presented on-site to claim professionals. These workshops are designed to teach as well as refine the skills required to effectively assess disability claims. Claim Consultation services involve PDC's team of professionals who provide a comprehensive approach to assessing psychiatric and complex medical disability claims. Our staff and consultants can assist in the evaluation of your claim either on-site or from our home office.
