Best Med Services

Occupational Health

Best Med offers a broad range of clinical services to help keep workers healthy and productive from the point of hire — offering pre-placement exams, periodic and regulatory evaluations, wellness interventions, injury care, return to work, disability avoidance, and fitness for duty assessments — until employment concludes and beyond.

Physical Exam Services

Best Med knows that determining the fitness and ability of an employee is an important decision for any business. That's why we offer a number of medical exams — all of which can be customized to suit your needs — to provide you with the information needed to create and maintain a healthy and safe workplace in keeping with applicable laws and regulations.

The most common physical exams that we offer include:

Pre-Placement Physicals - Best Med helps determine whether applicants/employees are medically and physically able to perform their essential job functions.

Fitness-For-Duty Examinations - Via in-depth clinical exam, record review, and analysis of job descriptions, Best Med helps you assess whether employees can perform the required job duties unique to their position in the context of performance and attendance issues.

Executive Physical Examination Program and Employee Wellness Examinations - Guided by the principles of family medicine and preventive medicine, Best Med offers appropriate medical screening and education that identifies at-risk health disorders and lifestyle behaviors. This facilitates early intervention, cultivates healthier, more satisfied and productive workers, and lowers health care costs. Learn more...

Regulatory Examinations - Let Best Med help you maintain regulatory compliance with the rules and regulations of OSHA, DOT/CDL and other federal agencies, as well as ensure medical conformity with ADA and FMLA laws and other applicable guidelines.

Industry-Specific and Other Specialized Examinations - Best Med offers a broad-range of specialized physical exams and diagnostic tests (respiratory clearance exams, pulmonary function testing, audiometric screening, visual acuity testing, functional capacity evaluations, x-rays, etc.) including those for CDL drivers, firefighters, police, healthcare workers, asbestos and hazardous material workers, and employees of virtually any industry. Please contact us to learn more about Best Med's extensive experience in this area.

Workplace Substance Abuse Services

Best Med's certified Medical Review Officer (MRO) shares your commitment to a safe, drug-free workplace and recognizes that employers face an alarming problem in this regard. Studies show that nearly 70% of drug users are employed. Sixty (60) billion dollars are spent annually on drug abuse. According to the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), compared to the non-abusing employee the typical drug-abusing worker has 2.5 times more absences of 8 days or more; 3 times more latenesses; is 3 times more likely to abuse normal sick leave benefits; has 3.6 times more work-related accidents; and is 5 times more likely to file for workers' compensation benefits.

We can customize a cost-effective workplace drug and alcohol program that meets your company's specific requirements. Our substance abuse programs are designed to keep you in compliance with appropriate regulations, both governmental and industry-specific. Most of all, when successfully enforced, they assist in creating a safer environment for your workers and customers.

    Clinical Services, Treatment of Workplace Injury and/or Illness

    At Best Med, we are committed to providing quality evidence-based medical care designed to return injured patients to their optimal functional level, in the workplace and beyond, as soon as is medically feasible. By virtue of our experience in applying the fundamental principles of occupational, family, and preventive medicine we understand that doing so facilitates recovery and patient satisfaction.

    When an employee is injured on the job, medical care should be provided by a board-certified physician who has the training and experience in the prevention, evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation, and management of occupationally-induced illnesses and injuries. Best Med's Medical Director is specially trained and experienced in these areas. He ensures that every injured worker we treat within the workers' compensation system receives appropriate care intended to yield the best outcome possible. Learn more ...
