A Message from the Director

Edward W. Younger III, M.D. is Medical Director of MRK Medical Consultants. An experienced orthopedic surgeon, he has been performing medical evaluations since 2000.

     Since 1975, MRK Medical Consultants has been providing comprehensive analysis of personal injury cases for the legal profession and insurance industry. Injury analysis is one of the most critical components in establishing the tone and direction of a personal injury legal case and quite often affects the case outcome.

     Our experience runs both deep and wide. We have a team of more than 45 expert medical-legal consultants in 30 different specialties and sub-specialties. We work very hard to recruit consultants who are accomplished in their clinical practices as well as skilled at developing medical reports and testimony. We continue to grow in areas of specialty and in geographic coverage while maintaining our reputation for high quality service.

     MRK is dedicated to partnering with medical experts who are renowned in their fields. Our consultants belong to medical organizations representing their specific specialties. Most have multiple affiliations with groups such as the American Academy of Orthopedics, the American Medical Association, and the California Medical Association. Many also keep hospital privileges and contacts. All of our consultants maintain the highest standards of medical practice and knowledge.

     MRK consultants provide opinions regarding the relationship between symptoms, findings, and causation. Upon request, MRK consultants can also provide opinions regarding patient prognosis, need for proposed surgical procedures, and future medical care. Our office physicians are happy to provide telephone review of the merits of your case to assist you in deciding whether to proceed.

     We look forward to hearing from you.


Edward W. Younger, III, M.D.
