Dr Ernest Agatsein has served as a Qualified Medical Evaluator in urology since 1987. He performs hundreds of Panel Qualified Medical Evaluations and Agreed Medical Evaluations every year. Among the thousands of injured workers in the State of California that he has evaluated, many are first responders such as firemen, police officers and deputy sheriffs who were referred for work related urologic injuries and cancer. As a urologist who has spent a significant portion of his career evaluating and treating symptoms due to neurogenic bladder and issues related to urinary incontinence, he is frequently sought out to evaluate patients who have had back injuries with resultant voiding dysfunction or erectile dysfunction.
