OurMission Statement

Sharp Medical Evaluators (SME) aims to deliver the highest order of quality medical-legal services in the state of California. Our primary focus is to offer QME, AME and IME evaluations in all medical and surgical specialties. Our doctors are trained to deliver honest,timely, and evidence-based reports to help resolve disputed claims. When issues are debatable or in doubt, SME obtains the appropriate diagnostic studies to objectively determine the extent of the injury and pathology. The medical team strives to produce ratable reports based upon substantial medical evidence and is knowledgeable on how to properly utilize the AMA guidelines.

SME prides itself on its strong network of doctors. Our doctors have diverse specialties including orthopedic injury, internal medicine, occupational medicine, hand surgery, spine surgery, chiropractic, psychology, and other specialties. Our physicians and staff have a great depth of understanding of workers’ compensation laws, guidelines, and treatment plans for all work-related injuries. At SME, patients are always treated with empathy, dignity, and respect.

Dr. Steven N. Brourman, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon (, SME’s founder and Medical Director, has unsurpassed experience as a QME, AME, and IME, and carefully screens all doctors to assure that they are highly knowledgeable, dedicated to providing top-notch reports, and understand the subtleties and issues in each claim. This is SME’s competitive advantage as the vast majority of cases evaluated by our physicians are settled without extensive litigation.

In summary, SME’s medical evaluations are not cookie-cutter; they require careful thought and preparation. Most importantly, accurate assessments require experience and expertise in assessing each individual injury for its present and potential future impact on the injured worker.

Our mission is to be the best at what we do by delivering on time, high quality and ratable reports, which are essential to all parties during the process of reaching equitable med-legal settlements.
