Appointment Guidelines

Medical Records Policy

To ensure that your case is handled in a timely manner, we require medical records and cover letter two weeks prior to the scheduled evaluation. Edington Medical Group only accepts records at two service locations; Emeryville and Sacramento. Evaluations scheduled in Emeryville, Oakland, San Jose, Santa Rosa and Petaluma should be mailed to the Emeryville office location. Evaluations scheduled in all other office locations should be mailed to Sacramento.

Claimant Questionnaires

Patient Questionnaires are mailed two weeks prior to the evaluation date. The questionnaire must be completed prior to the scheduled evaluation time. Incomplete questionnaires may result in rescheduling of the evaluation. Early arrival is expected for all patients requiring an interpreter for both the patient and the interpreter to allow for completion of the questionnaire. Patient Questionnaires can be downloaded in advance on the Patient Questionnaires page of our web-site.

All depositions and trials require pre-payment 10 business days in advance. Trial fees and pre-payment arrangements are quoted at the time of date/time confirmation. California Workers' Compensation Depositions require $500 pre-payment which is non refundable if the deposition is not canceled 5 business days in advance. All other depositions require $1900 pre-payment which is non refundable if the deposition is not canceled 5 business days in advance.
