Processing Fee

Production Cost

If records (digital, paper, storage) are found, a Final Invoice for the reproduction cost, the certification process, and the digital distribution of the records, will be submitted to your office for approval. This final reproduction cost must be made payable to our medical practice "William Ramirez, DC QME" for our valuable time in making records available.

Personal Appearance

Subpoenas for Personal Appearance must be personally served directly to the medical doctor, or to the most knowledgeable person who you are requesting to appear or testify at trial or hearing. Witness fees per California Government Code §68092.5, must also be included and payable to the medical provider's name at the time of service.


PLEASE read thoroughly the California Government Code §68092.5:

(a) The party designating the expert is responsible for any fee charged by the expert for preparing for the testimony and for traveling to the place of the civil action or proceeding, as well as for any travel expenses, unless otherwise determined by the court.

(b) The service of a proper subpoena or notice accompanied by the tender of the expert witness fee described in subdivision (a) is effective to require the party employing or retaining the expert to produce the expert for testimony. If the party serving the notice or subpoena fails to tender the expert’s fee under subdivision (a), the expert shall not be required to appear at that time, unless the parties stipulate otherwise.
