Good morning,

Direct IME wishes to send you wishes of health for you and your family over the Easter holidays. We hope you are able to create some joy and connection albeit it may look different than your past Easter celebrations. Some ways our team have stayed connected (weekly video zoom meetings, more phone calls, less emails!)

We have last-minute openings available and a list of specialists with upcoming available appointments.

Don’t forget that we record all your requests in the order they come in. If there is a specialist you would like to book later in the year, please send us your examinee information and we will be sure to contact you as soon as an appointment date becomes available.

To ensure clients access to timely medical assessments while maintaining a priority on COVID-19 prevention, the majority of Direct IME’s will be able to accommodate virtual assessments using a secure video platform. We will structuring the assessments as follows so there is no sacrifice to the quality of evidence being produced:

  1. Claimant has virtual assessment with assessor using their phone, tablet, or PC. View doctors that are available by virtual IMEs by clicking on https://www.directimebc.ca/doctors?&location=.virtual
  2. An initial report will be written that includes the claimant’s history, account of the accident, self-reported injuries, and the assessor’s early opinions on diagnosis and treatment recommendations based on the medical records and virtual assessment.
  3. Once the Health Authorities have deemed it safe to conduct in-person assessments again, the claimant will be seen for a physical examination.
  4. The report will be finalized and provided to the client.

If you don’t see what you need on our roster, please let us know and we can try and get you the expert that you are seeking. If you have any questions regarding our virtual assessments, experts or their specialties please feel free to contact us at bc-appointments@directime.ca or call 778-372-1400.

We appreciate your understanding during this unusual time.
