Hello,

I've been given this list as available assessors to do a physical (TBI) and mental assessment (effects of). I'm in the South Island, but apparently, these people will travel. Anyone have any recommendations for positive (or warnings!!) assessors who do fair and accurate reports? Interested in Marius Hill. TIA!

Cheesman, Ben- Rotorua

Collier, John- Hamilton

MacDonald, Liz – Rotorua

Meads, Russell -Whakatane

Todd, Michelle -New Plymouth

Henderson Rebecca- Christchurch

Hill Marius -Invercargill

Tremewan Pip- Christchurch

Walker Alan Dunedin /Timaru

I found Michele Todd to be thorough and speedy buy mine was broken bones not healed properly not mental injury. That is usually done by phsychriatist. Mine are all in the North island.

Sorry if unhelpful.

Trying to avoid any kind of personality arguments but instead focus on who was the most qualified and has the most relevant qualification to your particular situation. All too often the ACC try to put someone forward to you who is ill-equipped to determine the nature or degree of problem . What is perhaps even more important is to obtain a copy of the questions the ACC are put into the independent assessor. This is where the true surprises come in as an order for the ACC to get the report they want they ask loaded questions rather than questions to address what you're treatment providers have expressed as the main concerns..
