Our office will help you complete all the necessary correspondence related to your work injury. We understand that work injuries are already stressful enough without confusing paperwork.

Sometimes companies will try to direct their injured workers to specific doctors, and although the company may suggest that you attend these doctors, they may not force you to do so on a continued basis. It’s not uncommon for company doctors to be more concerned about the best interests of the company than those of the injured worker.
Work injuries often result from an isolated incident but can also occur from repetitive stresses over the course of time. We offer a variety of treatments that can successfully treat many different types of work injuries including conditions, such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Company doctors or nurses may offer less care than you really need by minimizing your injury and simply sending you on your way with little or no treatment. Likewise, the significance of your injuries may not be taken seriously and fully cared for at the Emergency Room. Our patients always come first! Although we like to think of ourselves as being both company and patient friendly, we will never ignore or minimize your injuries at the insistence of the company or the managed care organization handling your claim.
