Medical Review Officer
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF MEDICAL REVIEW OFFICERS (AAMRO)
Dr. Patel is a certified Medical Review Officer (MRO) through the American Association of Medical Review Officers (AAMRO) since 2006.
A Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a licensed physician that is responsible for receiving and reviewing laboratory results generated by an employer’s drug-testing program, and evaluating medical explanations for specific drug test results.
Not all positive results signify that illicit substances are involved. Prescription medications can trigger a positive result too – this is also one aspect of being an MRO – determining whether the substances detected are legitimate or not.
