INJURED WORKER CARE
Dr. Lagen's 5 Point Process
You have a lot on your plate. You need an advocate you can count on to navigate a less stressful and more effective recovery – and your return to work.
We’re here to help. What you can expect with Dr. Lagen:
I attended St. Louis University School of Medicine and completed my residency in Family Medicine through the St. John’s Hospital System in Grosse Pointe, MI. After training, I moved to the Vancouver, WA area where I worked as a family practitioner which included having a family practice clinic.
In the last 11 years I became involved in occupational medicine and quickly realized that navigating through the bureaucracy of a work comp claim can be complicated, confusing and for many discouraging and frustrating.
To better help injured workers, I opened a medical office focused exclusively on helping workers injured on the job move through the work comp process. By providing practical, sensible evidence-informed medical guidance the mission is to minimize the worker’s time away from work and develop a clear path to successful claim resolution.
REOPENING A CLOSED CLAIM
There are times when it is necessary to reopen a Workers' Comp claim. In this situation we will help you accurately assess your current situation, order necessary diagnostic studies and fill out and file the Reopening Application.
MEDICAL RECORD REVIEW
Helping attorneys and claims representatives review medically related cases is one of our specialties. We provide a clearly written report that gets to the scientific, medically based core of a claim or dispute.
