Our doctors are also highly skilled and experienced in the management of work-related illnesses and injuries that are covered by workers' compensation. For many years, we have cared for patients with these unique conditions to help them achieve a safe, timely recovery and return to work. We fully understand the challenges associated with workplace injuries and are dedicated to providing top-quality care.
For effective results and clear communication, our doctors work in conjunction with the patient, employer, attorney and insurance carrier in order to establish appropriate work restrictions for each individual patient. This ongoing collaboration ensures that care is carried out to all medical and legal standards. To provide this valuable service to patients and employers alike, our doctors have received specific training in workers' compensation report writing and have many years of experience in this specialized field.

Motor Vehicle Accident
Car accidents are unfortunately common occurrences. How your body is affected after an accident can vary widely, with some people experiencing no physical damage while others may face critical injuries. In addition, the damage can take place anywhere on the body from the head to the extremities.
When a patient is feeling any kind of discomfort following a car accident, it is essential to seek medical care. In some cases, however, the shock and trauma of the accident can cause the body to release chemicals that delay the sensation of pain until later in the day or the following day. If that happens, visit the doctor at any point at which symptoms begin.
Symptoms that should receive medical attention following an automobile accident may include:
- vomiting or nausea
- difficulty concentrating
- numbness or weakness
- tenderness in a particular area
- limited range of motion
- blurred vision
The doctor will take a medical history, ask questions about the accident and perform a physical examination. Depending on the part of the body that is injured, an X-ray may be taken to assess whether any bones were broken. A treatment plan can be determined after the doctor has all of the necessary information to make an accurate diagnosis.
