Medical Reviewing Officer

Medical Reviewing OfficerThe Medical Review Officer, MRO, is a Medical Physician with a certification in the interpretation of urinary forensic drug testing. Many legitimate medications can interfere with the results of urine drug testing. Some people use illegal substances to try to hide or obscure the legitimate results of urine drug testing.
