Some of the doctors at Houston Neuropsychology Group, PLLC perform forensic and independent neuropsychological evaluations (known as IMEs) on a limited basis. For any cases that we are not able to accept, we would recommend Michael Chafetz, Ph.D., ABPP of Algiers Neurobehavioral Resource, LLC (504-636-6120). Through an agreement with our group, Dr. Chafetz will travel occasionally to Houston to provide forensic evaluations in our office. Please contact Algiers Neurobehavioral Resource directly with any requests or questions about their forensic evaluation services. Be sure to indicate that you are seeking an evaluation in Houston when doing so.
