"Take Out the Six Shooter"
This narrative was sent to me today from one of our doctors to critique.
“Orthopedic and neurological examination of the cervical spine revealed a positive Kemps it’s not a manuever...it’s a test (extension and rotation with compression producing intervertebral foramen and apophyseal joint compression) to the right.”
This is not an accurate description of Kemp’s test and there is no Kemp’s test in the cervical spine...This one misstatement, excludes you as expert in the medical legal community...YOU MUST BE ACCURATE TO BE AN EXPERT!
GIVE ME A BREAK!!!! This type of reporting is what destroys a PI practice. In fact, I would suggest to this doctor that he not take a gun and shoot himself in the foot, but instead that he simply put it between his eyes and pull the trigger, as it’s less painful.
When I say you have to be the best-of-the-best at what you do, I mean that factually. Spelling and grammar count, and most of all, be clinically accurate.
