- Work-related musculoskeletal disorders. These are medical conditions that arise as a consequence of working practices. They may include injuries as a consequence of repetitive work, without adequate training or without the use of appropriate equipment. Reports on medical conditions arising as a consequence of work-related practices are usually long and require meticulous attention to detail. PVF Medical has got vast experience in producing reports for medical conditions with work-related causes.
This list of medical conditions is not exhaustive and if you are unsure whether a particular medical condition is covered then contact us for further information.
PVF Medical will perform a thorough clinical assessment of the Client and review medical records if provided for a full medical report on musculoskeletal medical conditions. Medco reports for these medical conditions do not require the provision of medical records for review. For Medco reports, medical records will only be reviewed as an addendum report on these medical conditions.
October 2017 update: Dr Gerald George has temporarily stopped preparing Medco reports but still prepares full specialist medico-legal reports.
Dr Gerald George will be pleased to receive your instructions.
