For some, occupational medicine brings to mind workplaces with a higher risk for employee injury, like manufacturing plants. But it’s really about proactive planning to optimize health and productivity – and it’s important for any company, including office settings.
We work with a variety of organizations, including public and private businesses, nonprofit organizations and government entities. When you schedule a consultation, our specialists will meet with you to discuss your organization’s occupational health goals and we’ll help you get ahead of problems before they happen. We’re available for on-site and off-site consultations, and we’re responsive to bids for RFPs.

Our doctors can help employees in any industry, including office settings.
If you’ve sustained an injury or illness at work, first tell your manager and take the necessary steps for first aid. Then contact one of our occupational medicine clinics for an appointment. We’ll provide care and help communicate your health needs to your employer.
Choose a location and call the clinic for help making an appointment.
If this is an emergency, please call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.
At your visit, the doctor may perform a series of tests to evaluate your physical ability to perform your job. If you’ve been injured on the job, the doctor will work with you to create a plan for recovering and returning to work safely, which may include work restrictions.
Occupational medicine doctors specialize in medical care related to the workplace. They know how to properly document any work-related illnesses or injuries and can help communicate those to your employer.
Taking time to prepare before your appointment will help you get the most out of your time with your doctor. Use these suggestions as a starting point:
- Bring a photo ID, insurance card and any paperwork from your employer. It’s also a good idea to have your employer’s contact information on-hand. Your doctor should be able to communicate your test results and health status directly to your employer.
- Review the specifics of your injury or illness. If you’re being seen for a workplace injury or illness, speak with your doctor openly about what happened. We want to make sure you receive the care and assistance you need and ultimately, prevent similar accidents or exposures from happening again.
Many occupational medicine tests and assessments require only one appointment. For ongoing injury or illness care, we’ll help you schedule any necessary follow-up appointments before you leave.
Occupational medicine addresses the full scope of health in the workplace. Occupational therapy assists those living with injury, illness or disability to do the things they want and need to do so they can live a healthy and full life.
