The Qualified Medical Evaluator (QME) is an independent medical doctor certified by the DWC Medical Unit to perform medical evaluations on injured workers.  If you are without a work comp lawyer, a QME will evaluation your injury and that report will be used to for the resolution of your work comp claim.  If you are represented by a work comp attorney, then your attorney would select an Agreed Medical Evaluator (AME), not a QME.
