Medical Conditions: Reactive Airways Dysfunction Syndrome

Rushford v. Montana Contractor Compensation Fund [05/30/14] 2014 MTWCC 16 Where the Court found Petitioner lacking in credibility, it rejected the treating physician’s opinion that Petitioner suffered from RADS, a condition reliant on self-reporting and testing that is effort-dependent.  The treating physician’s reliance on Petitioner’s credibility was an inseparable component of his diagnosis and treatment, and while the treating physician found Petitioner credible, the Court did not.
