The Commission is pleased to have this opportunity to recognize those persons who have achieved certification as Disability Examiners. Each of the listed professionals has participated in at least 48 hours of training specifically in disability examination and independent medical evaluation. Additionally, prior to CDE examination revisions effective October 1, 2002, each CDE completed an eight (8) week examination requiring a practicum submission to the NADEP Board and a research thesis in response to case studies.

Attorneys take note.. Listed below are qualified expert witnesses who can lend assistance with determining the presence or absence of disability, and have litigation experience serving as expert witnesses in Workers' Compensation and personal injury cases. Please feel free to peruse this listing and to call the Commission's office should you have any questions about any of the listed Certified Disability Examiners

Research Qualification Statement: This listing is for the use of those referral sources that wish to refer cases to disability examiners in their respective geographical area. It is meant to serve as a locator page for those persons making inquiries as to the addresses of specified individuals for other business purposes. It is not meant to be used for research studies without the expressed written consent from the CHCC administration.
