Local Broward County businesses looking to MD Now as their source for essential Occupational Medicine services.
By: MD Now Urgent Care
Strategically located at the Deerfield Mall in Publix Plaza, the MD Now center provides a vast array of occupational medicine services that can save employee time and money by reducing expensive ER visits.
“Since our average treatment time is less than one hour in all of the MD Now centers, we offer area workers a way to be examined, tested, screened and treated in record time,” said Peter Lamelas, M.D., CEO of MD Now Urgent Care. “We maintain a strong return-to-work philosophy that employers like and that can put workers back on the job as quickly as possible.”
With an on-site laboratory, X-ray services and in-house Physical Therapy programs at select locations, MD Now can get workers back on the job safely and expediently. MD Now provides a one-stop shop for job-related medical needs including:
· Rapid Drug Screening
· Pre-Employment Physicals
· DOT Physicals
· Fingerprint Background Checks
When it comes to occupational medicine, the prompt treatment that an urgent care can provide is sparking greater interest from employers. “Primary care physicians must schedule appointments, while emergency department treatment for a minor injury can last for several hours and cost employees greater out-of-pocket costs. We serve a unique niche for businesses and the healthcare needs of their employees, including a dedicated Worker’s Compensation Case Management team that makes communication easier and accessible to employers,” explained Lamelas.
