What is occupational medicine?

Occupational medicine is an employer driven service focused on keeping employees safe and healthy on the job. Our services include Health Administration (OSHA) exams such as urine drug screening, breath alcohol and hair collection tests, hearing exams, Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, non-DOT physical exams, and workers compensation support. If an employee is injured, we do everything we can to help him or her get better faster.

A leader in the field for more than 20 years

Our physicians are experts in occupational medicine and know federal and state guidelines. They are better at caring for work injuries than most primary care doctors. Certified medical assistants, radiation technologists, LPN’s, and RN’s conduct occupational exams. DOT and non-DOT physicals are performed by MD’s, DO’s, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners.

What happens if there’s a workplace injury?

Injured employees will get excellent care and the support they need for a fast, safe recovery at our urgent care centers. We treat then refer patients within our extensive Riverside Medical Group network for primary care and specialty services where most commercial insurances are accepted. Radiation technologists are available daily for on-the-spot imaging.

Employee Assessment

Our urgent care centers use an integrated and robust process to assess employees for pre-employment wellness. Results are shared quickly with employers to reduce delays. At Riverside Medical Group we understand the importance of appropriate and adequate staffing. We are here to support your business growth.

Being injured at work is difficult for most workers. We act quickly after an injury to offer care and help employees get back to work safely. This also speeds healing and makes most employees feel better about themselves.

If an employee is injured, we tell employees, employers and insurance companies about it. This includes details about the injury, treatment plans and any workplace restrictions.

We also teach injured employees why returning to work can help with recovery. This makes most employees more likely to complete their treatment plans. It also reduces disabilities and lost workdays.

When employees get good care, it can mean the difference between recovering or not recovering. So any time an injured worker sees one of our doctors, we ask for feedback. Then we share that feedback with our clinics so they can learn from it.

Many employers require pre-employment exams to help reduce health and safety risks at work. We provide these exams to businesses of all sizes across the country.

All commercial vehicle drivers are required by federal law to pass a regular DOT physical exam. DOT exams follow strict rules and help make sure drivers are healthy enough to drive safely. Drivers who pass get a valid DOT card. Learn more
