Occupational Health

Another facet of our commitment to the communities we serve is demonstrated by our dedication to industrial medicine through our workers' compensation injury program.

Injuries that occur in the workplace require immediate attention. At OAK Orthopedics, we evaluate and treat those injuries sustained at the workplace in a manner that benefits both the injured employee and their employer. Our staff promptly communicates our assessment of the employee's injury, along with any specific treatment that was administered, to the employer and the insurance provider. These methods prove highly effective in reducing workers' compensation claims and disputes.

In addition, we work with the injured employee to facilitate his or her return to work at a safe and comfortable pace, while consulting with the employer to ease the transition with minimal disruption and optimal production.

As part of our comprehensive approach to patient care, we have partnered with AHCS to provide our workers' compensation patients with commonly prescribed medications at the time of their appointment. This point of care program is a convenient and cost effective way for patients to receive their medications with no hassles, no out of pocket cost, and it eliminates the need to wait in line at the local chain pharmacy.

Employers, employees, and insurance providers can trust the cccupational health practices and policies of OAK Orthopedics, along with the knowledge that we also provide quality, comprehensive care, and treatment to the patient.
