Q: What led you to work in Occupational Health?

Q: What drew you to begin practicing in the Franklin County area?

Q: What would you say is a common misconception about Occupational Health?

In our program, we are able to provide full range of employee physical examinations, OSHA medical surveillance, department of transportation, drug and alcohol testing, travel medicine, preventative immunizations as well as work-related injury or diseases treatment, etc. Our goal is to not only treat work-related injuries and illnesses, but also develop a plan that returns each employee safely to work as quickly as possible.
