We know that early diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries are the keys to returning an injured worker to the job as soon as possible, thereby reducing both medical costs and time lost from work. Our purpose is to provide excellent medical care to the injured worker, while at the same time keeping the employers and insurance carrier apprised of the patient's treatment plan, progress and status.
We understand that the relationships between employers, insurance carriers, claims administrators, nurse case managers, adjusters, and employees can be complex. We pledge to respond with an immediate solution for your injured worker with skillful patient care from our group of experts.
We believe in working closely with the patient, the employer and the carrier to develop appropriate work restrictions and light duty assignments. Our cost-containment strategies include a conservative approach to the use of our services and testing procedures. We emphasize the value of work-injury prevention and provide education to our patients in proper body mechanics as well as post-injury rehabilitation. Additionally, our physicians have received special training in workers' compensation report writing to assure that our written communications meet all accepted legal standards.
