About one third of our lives are spent at work. Those learning to become doctors get no more than fours hours of training while in medical school learning about the diseases, injuries and illnesses likely to arise in workplaces.
The physician guiding our clinics is board-certified in Occupational Medicine, having received intense specialized training in this medical specialty. This training, more than two decades of experience, and a seasoned team of nurse practitioners bring their skills to bear on a patient’s medical problems—a focus not only on the symptoms, but the cause as well.
Is your illness work-related?
When testing is advised
Once the role of the workplace in causing the illness has been understood, OHCC providers assess the impact the illness or injury has on the worker’s ability to work. This determination gives the patient a clear idea of what work limitations and capacities are, and under what conditions the worker can work safely and healthily.
