Occupational Medicine


Occupational medicine is a medical specialty that deals with the prevention and treatment of conditions and injuries in the workplace. Our occupational medicine providers are experts in the comprehensive treatment of a wide array of conditions and injuries for the worker and in developing dynamic plans to return to work and healthy activity.

Our providers are dedicated to the welfare of the worker and believe workers should have access to a continuum of occupational healthcare to limit restrictions and reduce costs and lost work time.

At the Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Center, we understand that conditions and injuries affecting your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments can make working or getting back to work difficult. Our occupational medicine specialists will work with you to assess your injury or condition and develop a return to work plan custom-tailored to each individual patient. We also offer respirator fit testing and POETs (post-offer employment testing). There are on-site urine drug screenings available, and we have our own in-house MRO who reads all drugs screens.
