Pre-employment Physicals

 Many employers require pre-employment physicals to ensure new hires are physically capable of performing their job and meet general health standards. These exams help reduce the risk of work-related injuries and illnesses, determine proper employee placement and prevent excess absences due to illness.

At Dillon Internal Medicine, we perform general employment physical exams to help prepare prospective employees for industrial positions. We will also complete the necessary forms required by the employer. Call us today to schedule an employment physical exam.

Work-related Injuries

 An industrial injury refers to any type of injury that occurs while working. This injury is usually the result of an accident and can be caused by certain environmental conditions, misuse of equipment, or improper adherence to safety guidelines. Chronic injuries may also develop as a result of repeated activities such as typing or poor job-specific technique. Industrial injuries most frequently affect the neck and back. Injuries that occur while working should be reported immediately. They should receive prompt and proper treatment.

At Dillon Internal Medicine, we are experienced in treating work-related injuries and helping employees achieve a quick and full recovery. Our providers are always accessible 24 hours a day. Employees experience minimal waiting time in our office and have access to full laboratory and radiological services. We communicate with employers and insurers on a regular basis and complete paper-work in a timely fashion.

Our providers commonly treat and/or coordinate the management of the following injuries:

  • Burns
  • Cervical Strain
  • Exposure to hazardous substance
  • Eye injury
  • Falls
  • Lacerations
  • Lumbar strain
  • Fractures
  • Joint sprains

Our objective is to provide proper medical care to injured employees and to prevent future injuries.

Industrial Wellness

 Employees are a company’s most valuable assets. Happy, healthy employees enhance the work-place environment with a greater sense of morale, reduced stress, and increased productivity. Companies with healthy employees benefit with low employee turnover, enhanced employee performance, and a greater return on investment. On the other hand, companies that employ people with chronic illness and risk factors for disease are more likely to experience higher healthcare costs, increased absenteeism, more frequent disability, and low productivity.

It is in a company’s best interest to promote healthy living and good overall health. Dillon Internal Medicine is prepared to assist, support, and advise employers with this objective. Our providers actively and regularly screen for diseases, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, cancer, and heart disease, to allow for early detection, prevention, and treatment. We also encourage healthy living through smoking cessation, weight loss, dietary modification, and regular exercise. Dillon Internal Medicine can customize a plan for any company interested in maintaining the overall health of its workforce.
