When reviewing other provider consultations, be sure to include the specialty, board certification, the name of the doctor, and any commonality or discrepancies between their evaluation and yours.

Is a consultant performing any different or unusual physical exam testing that you have not considered?

Not sure what a Yergason's test is? Look it up.

Finally, make sure that you can follow the logic of the consultant. Are the conclusions of the report a surprise? If so, why?

Take careful note to include the specifics of the consultant notes that appear to support conclusions.

Opinions that are overly vague or unsubstantiated may need to be discussed in greater detail in the discussion section of your report.
