FAQ

Q?

I’ve heard of mobile bloodmobiles, mobile cancer screening and mobile immunization clinics, but not this kind of clinic. Can you tell me more about it?

A.

A mobile clinic devoted to Occupational Medicine is an entirely new concept! Our expertise is in those areas of medicine where specialized formal training, certification and experience allow us to provide employers and their workforce high quality job related medical services. Companies we serve save time, effort and expense when addressing frequently encountered government mandates, desirable voluntary programs and other work related issues we service.

Q?

What services that you offer specifically address government mandates?

A.

The most prominent of these are DOT mandated physical exams with certification for commercial drivers and drug and alcohol testing for drivers, federal employees and federal government contractors. In addition, we offer a respiratory protection program that more than meets OSHA requirements for respirator use by employees subjected to certain respiratory contaminants. Of note is that we offer initial and periodic spirometry to all such employees. This provides not only extra protection for employee health, but also liability protections for their employers.

Q?

What services that you offer are voluntary for employers and why should companies consider these?

A.

Many companies currently require pre-placement physical exams and have non-DOT drug and alcohol programs in place. We can meet the needs of these programs on-site in our mobile clinic to avoid the hassle of scheduling off-site clinic appointments. Benefits to employers include lower insurance costs and reduction in general liability. For example, a worker’s compensation case where post-accident drug and alcohol testing reveals abuse can limit, or even eliminate, employer liability!

Q?

As an Occupational Medicine specialist, you have expertise in workers’ compensation cases. How can an employer draw upon your expertise?

A.

We offer limited workers’ compensation consultation targeted at those cases that have “stalled” and the employer either has an employee endlessly off work or working with restrictions resulting in significantly diminished production and loss of revenue. Our specialized training and experience in this area of Occupational Medicine enables us to get these cases moving again leading to resolution in a timely fashion.

Q?

The practice of Occupational Medicine includes many other interesting areas. Can employers discuss aspects of your specialty not specifically mentioned in your menu of offered services?

A.

Yes! We are open to questions and discussion concerning any aspect of Occupational Medicine. As an example, we are frequently called upon to do on-site “walk-throughs” of factories or plants to discuss noise levels, air contamination levels, ergonomics and other issues related to employee health and safety.

Q?

Your mobile clinic concept for the Occupational Medicine specialty services you offer obviously provides employers with significantly improved convenience over currently available clinic-based services. Does this mean that fees involved are significantly higher?

A.

We have carefully compared the costs of establishing and operating a mobile clinic versus a “brick and mortar” clinic. We are able to offer our ultra-convenient services to employers at competitive fees.

Q?

Haven’t you been talking mostly about services offered to “big companies” and “large employers”? What about those of us who operate small businesses? Can we benefit from what you offer?

A.

Yes, absolutely! Our mobile clinic allows us to offer on-site "house calls" to any size business. Call us for a quote on any Occupational Medicine services you need.

Q?

A common problem shared by all companies that have either DOT or non-DOT drug and alcohol programs is finding services for testing after hours “reasonable suspicion or post accident” cases. Do you offer after hours or urgent response services for this purpose?

A.

We do offer such services on a limited basis. It is our desire to answer every call, but that isn’t feasible at this time due to the constraints of enough available personnel to provide service 24/7. However, we promise to help whenever it’s possible, not just when it’s convenient!
