MLB Series Part 3: How To Find A Doctor Who Works On A Medical Lien

This is part 3 in a 4 part series about explaining Medical Lien Basics to your client.

We're continuing our series on explaining a medical lien to your client for the first time. Attorneys can use this series as a way to explain the basics. As a recent addition to the Doctors on Liens™ team, it wasn't long ago that I was learning the basics myself. Hopefully this Q&A can help you answer your client's questions in a straight forward manner. We've discussed what a medical lien is and why it can be an integral part of your client's recovery and legal case. This now begs the question that we will answer today in part three:

How does my client find a doctor who will work on a lien basis?

In most cases, they won’t. You will. That’s why it’s so important your client found a reputable attorney like yourself who is experienced with personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. Once you understand the extent of your client's injuries, you can likely find them a doctor who works on a lien basis. But it's not always easy. Finding chiropractors, medical doctors, and specialists who are familiar with working on a lien basis can be tough when the client lives in a unfamiliar area or needs a specific type of specialist. That’s why attorneys, like you, rely on Doctors on Liens™ to find the best doctors anywhere.

Even if you have never worked with one of our doctors before, your client can be confident the doctor treating them is pre-screened, pre-qualified, and has the Doctors on Liens™ stamp of approval.

At this point, your client is probably saying "I'm relieved to know I'll be able to find medical treatment on a lien basis. But aren't there all types of doctors out there? What if my injuries require a specialist or what if I've suffered emotional injuries or distress?" Let's tackle that important question in part four of this series.

At Doctors on Liens™ we take our business very seriously. We know attorneys aren't just using our service to find doctors, they're using it to find THE BEST DOCTORS and that’s what we provide. The legal community has trusted Doctors on Liens™ for 25 YEARS because this is all we do. We are not doctors or lawyers. We are not a subsidiary of any medical group or law firm. We are impartial facilitators helping attorneys find qualified medical professionals who work on a lien basis. To contact our helpful staff, call 855-DOC-LIENS.

How to get on our list (for doctors)

First, make sure that you meet all of our criteria as we are very particular about the doctors we accept. There are other services that are less discriminating, but our doctors get consistently better results because of our high standards. To enquire about starting the screening process, call 855-DOC-LIENS.

We only take one doctor from each geographical area, so you may be placed on a waiting list. Sometimes we can place you in a matter of months, but in more geographically desirable locations we've had doctors wait for years to join our service. Please ask about your location.

Doctors on Liens doesn't bombard you with a million doctors. I could use a phone book for that. Instead it weeds out all but the best and I've never been disappointed with the results. I consider them an invaluable resource for my firm.
