A medico-legal assessment is generally requested when an independent doctor’s opinion (outside of a claimant’s treating team) is required from an insurer or other legal pathway. The psychiatric report can be used in relation to compensation for work-related stress, after a traumatic event (such as an accident), eligibility for return to work, or as evidence in civil court case.
The psychiatric assessment is used to establish a link between the trauma/stressor reported, and the psychological condition and extent of emotional impairment to the claimant.
Dr Gundabawady is able to provide independent psychiatric assessments in Townsville, and he travels to Cairns twice a month. Please feel free to contact the reception staff in the office at any time to enquire about appointment dates and fees.
