What steps should I take in the event of a personal injury?
If you experience a personal injury, stop whatever you’re doing and alert the right people. For example, if you’re at work, let your direct supervisor know that you’re hurt and need to visit the doctor.
What happens during a personal injury visit?
At CoreSmart, a personal injury visit begins with a review of your medical records and a discussion of your injury, including what you were doing when it occurred, the symptoms you’re experiencing, and their severity.
After gathering that information, Dr. Friedman conducts a physical exam. He may also order laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging to get a complete picture of your health. Once Dr. Friedman determines the type of injury you experienced, he develops a custom treatment plan that relieves pain and encourages your body’s healing process.
