WORKERS’ COMPENSATON INJURIES
Highlands Neurosurgery has extensive experience in the management of workers’ compensation injuries. We commonly treat work related injuries from a large geographic region including Virginia and Tennessee as well as other bordering states. We treat surgical and nonsurgical injuries, including injuries to the head and peripheral nervous system, lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine as well as injuries to the spinal cord itself. Our philosophy is simple: To provide timely evaluation and quality care with the goal of returning the patient to their pre-injured state, for work and other normal activities, as soon as possible. In addition to our role as treating physicians, we perform Independent Medical Evaluations, Impairment Ratings and Medical Record Reviews. Ms. Julie Goff, our dedicated and experienced work comp coordinator, is available to assist with all of your work comp referrals and information requests.
Mrs. Julie Goff-Wigand – WORKERS COMP
Mrs. Goff-Wigand has over 23 years of experience dedicated to coordinating timely healthcare evaluation and treatment for workers who are injured on the job. She is a member of VSIA, TNSIA and MSWCA and attends numerous education programs in Tennessee and Virginia each year. She assists patients, employers, insurance carriers, rehabilitation case managers, and attorneys who represent both the patient and the employer with the objective of getting the injured worker the care they need, as soon as possible. Recognizing that many of our work injured patients travel a long distance to our office, Mrs. Goff-Wigand coordinates evaluations and diagnostic procedures to minimize patient travel and inconvenience.
