The experienced physicians at Midwest Occupational Medicine are available on-call 24 hours per day, seven days a week to help you with injury management consulting – locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

Our process to assure excellent patient care for injured workers is to get involved early, even before an injury might happen. Midwest Occupational Medicine has established a nationwide network of associated clinics that communicate effectively with our physicians to achieve positive outcomes. We make arrangements with the appropriate clinic in the area in which you will be working – before an accident happens. Whether you are in a permanent location, or your workers travel for temporary assignments across the country, we have connections with a clinic in the area you need. So when an accident occurs, there is a plan in place for evaluation and treatment.

After an accident happens, our physician is notified, and the case is discussed with your safety representative. All calls are handled directly by our physicians. Typically the injured worker is taken to the prearranged facility, occasionally to the Emergency Room in more serious cases. Our physician will discuss the case with the medical provider there. We believe that this physician-to-provider interaction is critical to positive outcomes.  Often only physicians are allowed access to speak with ER and clinic physicians and other providers.

We are contemporaneously involved from the onset and are your best chance at having access to communications with providers. The injured employee benefits from an experienced Occupational Medicine physician who is knowledgeable about the history of a particular injury, the workplace environment, potential exposures, and the physical demands of the job.

Our physician will discuss appropriate treatment options, work status, and follow-up, and possible referral in more serious cases.

We can provide ongoing discussions and consultation for the injury after the initial treatment.

For over thirty years, Midwest Occupational Medicine has been managing Workers’ Compensation injuries. We pride ourselves in always knowing the workplace. We have toured innumerable factories, warehouses, and other places of business, to understand the risks involved in particular types of work and to better understand the mechanics of injuries.

When evaluating an injured worker, we take a comprehensive history, listen carefully to the employee, perform a thorough physical examination, and order appropriate testing when needed. We believe the proper diagnoses cannot be reached without careful listening and observation.

We are well versed in Workers’ Compensation laws and in OSHA rules and regulations,  and the rules involved in Mining, Maritime, and Railroad. We are up to date with the latest testing procedures and utilize the best referral specialists.
