What Our Clients Say About Us


After we received a last minute expert designation by Plaintiff’s Counsel, along with thousands of pages of new medical records involving previously unknown medical care and treatment, we retained Dr. Race for assistance in reviewing and evaluating the new medical records.  In a very short time, Dr. Race was able to  review the records and prepare a report concerning his opinions on the nature and extent of Plaintiff’s injuries and damages. 

Dr. Race reviewed thousands of pages of medical records, including hospital and surgical records, for both a neck and back surgery.   Dr. Race provided a clear, concise overview of the records, commented on causation issues, and rendered opinions refuting the reasonableness and necessity of care and treatment based on his experience, education, and knowledge.   His report was instrumental in the negotiation of a favorable resolution of the claim for my client.  

I highly recommend Dr. Race as an expert witness for numerous reasons.  First, he responds promptly to emails, calls, or other communications.  Second, he works hard with a “can do” attitude.  Third, he is a consummate professional.  I find his work impeccable.   In short, you can count on Dr. Race’s intelligence, education, experience, hard work and dedication. 

For all the reasons stated above, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Race as a medical expert.
