Inland Medical Evaluations

Generations of Quality.

We are a third-generation family-owned business that has chosen to specialize in Washington state. Given our thirty-year history, some larger companies have made offers, but we know we can do a better job for our physicians and our clients by staying small. The owners are part of the everyday operations at Inland, and we’re here when you have questions. We have dozens of physicians that have stayed with us for over 20 years and have found a home.

We’ve earned their loyalty by being attentive, honest, reliable, and accurate.

Our Mission

Inland Medical Evaluations provides reasoned independent opinions to the Washington medicolegal community as a family-owned small business. We believe in respect for all, and we value the insight, efficiency, and care displayed by our staff and physicians. As we transition into our third generation of family ownership, we commit to the open communication and honesty that have served us well.

Our History

In 1985, James W. Berry, Ed.D., dove headfirst into the world of microfiche and founded Inland Medical Evaluations in Spokane, Washington, to aid the vocational industry in getting claimants back to work. As business grew and email encroached, his daughters, Kathy Smith and Luanne Niggemyer, assumed ownership, successfully running Inland from 1988 to 2018. In that time, Inland worked within the Washington workers' compensation community, from organizations like WSIA and WAIME, to a panel coalition working with Labor and Industries to improve IME quality. We are pleased to announce a third generation of management, as Melinda Smith, Beth Niggemyer Doohan, and Lise Jorgensen Niggemyer step into leadership roles.  We are confident Inland will draw on the strength of old-fashioned hard work as we apply tailored web services to assist our clients. We know our success is tied to the incredible staff who have worked with us for many years.
