Client testimonial:

"To better serve the needs of our healthcare patients in today's rapidly changing and fast paced world, the utilization of telehealth services has become an essential technology that bridges the access gap between reputable health care providers and the consumers that need their expertise.

We have been fortunate to partner with Merit Medical Physicians from across the U.S. to conduct IME's and PIR's for the residents living in our western Nebraska panhandle region by offering these high-quality exams locally through the use of telehealth technologies. This has drastically reduced the financial and time associated burdens for consumers to access these reputable Merit Medical experts. 

Our rehab therapists who work directly with the Merit Medical Physicians have found this means of providing patient care very rewarding and satisfying. This unique blend of interdisciplinary professionals teaming together to conduct these exams, in my opinion, has afforded the patient access to an examination process that is thorough, detailed and of the highest quality. We are proud to work hand in hand with the entire Merit Medical team and have found this relationship to be a mutually beneficial and rewarding experience."
