the truth of the matter
is what we
At Medical Director Solutions, LLC (MDS), we’re sticklers, for figuring out what REALLY happened in a claim - regardless of who is doing the asking. In fact, clients can say that we are even passionate in what we do best - accurately getting to the “truth” about the medical facts of almost any claim where medicine is involved.
MDS was founded in 1998 in Metro Atlanta by former corporate medical director, Mitchell S. Nudelman, MD, JD, FCLM. A board-certified primary care physician, licensed attorney and Fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine, Dr. Nudelman has been our Chief Medical Officer and clinical leader ever since. We take great pride in our work product that adheres to both the principles of evidence-based medicine and the Daubert standard, for admissibility of expert testimony and medical/scientific evidence in court.
Like having a doctor on your team who sees things that other doctors or medical directors might not - by wearing his lawyer “glasses” - Dr. Nudelman supervises all cases, triaging each one personally. Selecting from the panel of well credentialed, board certified and experienced medical experts of almost every specialty that he has developed for MDS over many years (or one of the many other non-physician consultants) — when the timing is right and the data necessary to answer the medical issues correctly the first time is complete — only then he refers them for peer review. If we do not have just the right medical expert for the case, in most cases we can and will seek one out just for your case.
Medical Director Solutions performs peer review and other related administrative services for our clients, in a wide scope of cases and whatever medical issue is involved: workers compensation, motor vehicle or commercial truck accidents, or most types of liability, disability, or group health determinations, for just some more common examples.
Our core competency is an arm’s length medical peer review process combined with the provision of reliable, credible, and ethical expert medical decisions, based upon prevailing medical standards and accepted practices. On a case-by-case basis, we accept files and assist most everyone who needs us - treating each review in the same expert and professional manner:
- ALL attorneys, whether plaintiff or defense
- Employers, Insurance Companies, independent adjustors and nurse case managers
- Physician, hospital or medical board, or society, etc.
- Patients and the person who is “covered” or insured
No case is TOO COMPLEX or file TOO BIG for us – in fact large, complex cases involving numerous medical issues are our specialty. We are problem solvers – so much so that we made SOLUTION part of our name! We will even arrange to have large and disorderly files scanned, organized and table of contents prepared, with pages numbered and hyperlinks to critical documents. Where necessary, a clinical time-line can be constructed for the case by a nurse consultant and supervised by Dr. Nudelman. Copies are then available electronically for you, the medical experts and your clients – everyone can then work together off of the “same page” so to speak.
Our corporate benchmarks are Reliability - Credibility – Objectivity – Integrity - Accessibility – Efficiency. We strive to provide superior customer service while at the same time managing the cost, according to the stage of the case. A brief telephonic consultation can assist you in deciding what course of action is best, and depending in part upon what point in the life of a claim or litigation, the most cost effective way of achieving it.
