Beware of a Doctor who consults and works for workers compensation insurance companies!

Dr. Claudio Palma collects money from large workers compensation companies (Corvel) to give them his medical credentials to aid them in not providing medical care to patients. He failed to review my case accurately and none of the explanations for assessment matched my condition. Dr. Palma used a pre-filled out form to deny my surgeons request for a discogram so he could collect money at my expense! He is a general, medical doctor and anesthesiology and has no back ground or expertise as a orthopedic surgeon, yet he excepts large paychecks from Corvel Corporation as a Physicians Advisor because he has MD next to his name. Someone with this low of integrity should make you think twice about having him in charge of your care!
