Specializing In Occupational Medicine
Occupational Medicine is the branch of medicine that determines causation and helps manage the treatment of workplace injuries. Causation, in the context of occupational medicine, is the legal term that describes the relationship between the need for medical care and a specific work-related accident.
Our pledge to both the employer and injured worker is that we will provide you excellent medical care. Without this, complications will occur, treatment will be prolonged and medical costs will rise.
Besides providing great care, we understand the workers' compensation system, and its impact on your company's financial health. We believe something that can be cured in 3 weeks, shouldn’t take 8 weeks to heal. It is not enough to fix the problem; we must also fix the problem as efficiently as possible.
