Work Injury Treatment & Management

Early recognition, evaluation, and treatment of injuries not only help to keep a healthy and productive workforce, but also save time and money for the employer. Our goal is to evaluate and treat your injured workers in a way that not only optimizes their function and comfort, but also reduces their time away from work. Being located close to your work place and having experienced physicians and specialists available, we often eliminate the need for your injured worker to have to go to an Emergency Room or to their Primary Doctor; which can be more costly and complicated. Our services include:

  • Timely and aggressive treatment of work related injuries and on the job illnesses
  • Physician's first report of injury, interim, and final reports
  • Work status reports and/or telephone calls to employers with each employee visit
  • Automatic fax/e-mail of work status after each visit
  • Post-accident drug screening and Breath & Alcohol Testing (DOT and non-DOT)
  • Aggressive early return to work and modified work program
  • Sensitive to OSHA & ACOEM Guidelines
  • Provide First-Aid evaluation and treatment
  • Provide post-injury vaccinations
  • In-house physical therapy and work conditioning services, which allow early return to function and work

Pre-Employment Physical Exam

Drug Screening

We pride ourselves on assisting employers to develop and maintain a Drug Free Work Environment. It is imperative for an employer to administer a fundamentally and legally sound policy for drug and alcohol testing. It is important, too, to be properly trained in order to administer these sensitive programs. We are committed to provide instant in-house screening while providing affordable and timely results. As part of our program we provide:

  • Pre-employment, Post-Offer, Post-Accident, Random Testing, Return to Duty & Follow-Up

Instant In-House Drug & Alcohol Testing

We offer FDA approved drug and alcohol testing for the following substances and/or their metabolites:

  • Barbiturates
  • Benzodiazepines (Valium)
  • Propoxyphene (Darvocet)

Pulmonary Function Testing

Pulmonary Function Testing is used to access lung function performed on a device called a Spirometer. This procedure is a noninvasive process best for common diagnostics. We recommend Spirometry testing because it may reflect early changes in the lungs, prior to the onset of any symptoms. This would allow for earlier intervention and treatment of potential medical problems. This would benefit individuals who would potentially be exposed to hazardous airborne toxins to better monitor changes over time and to treat abnormalities before they become significant. Spirometry is required on all of the following exams:

  • Respiratory Fitness Testing
  • Asbestos Testing
  • Firefighter as a Baseline & Yearly Test

Audiometric or Hearing Testing

Occupational hearing loss is one of the leading causes of work-related disorders! Certified audiometric technicians can evaluate high-risk employees for abnormal audiograms or abnormal shift, which can warn employers of pending hearing injury and loss.
