WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - May 12, 2014 - PRLog -- MD Now Urgent Care ( – South Florida’s fastest growing urgent care provider has now expanded its occupational medicine services to all 16 locations. Due to its widespread South Florida presence, more than 850 local employers are sending employees to MD Now Urgent Care. Not only do employers find fast, affordable care for on-the-job injuries, MD Now is fast becoming a “one-stop” shop for all work-related tests and screenings, such as breath alcohol tests, pre-employment physicals, DOT exams, pulmonary function tests, and much more.

With a patient satisfaction rating of 85 percent, licensed physicians at MD Now give every workers compensation patient the individualized attention they deserve. Besides receiving personalized medical care, MD Now Workers Comp patients love the convenience of saving a trip to the local pharmacy with the ability to fill their prescriptions in-house through low-priced pharmaceuticals available for purchase at all MD Now Urgent Care Centers.

As an added bonus, MD Now provides in-house physical therapy programs at select locations. Designed to provide companies’ injured employees’ faster treatment onsite and without the run-around, this often results in both higher patient satisfaction rates and reduced recovery times.

Workers comp cases can be fraught with paperwork, so a dedicated Worker’s Compensation Case Management Team oversees all cases - and this additional oversight is what employers have learned to count on.

“Our Workers Comp professionals provide an important liaison between employers, injured employees, Work Comp Carriers, and our medical experts,” explains Peter Lamelas, M.D., CEO of MD Now Urgent Care.

“Our trained case-management staff helps streamline the reporting process through effective communication with all parties involved, allowing for a smooth transition from initial injury to getting injured employees back on the job quickly and efficiently.”

The following is a list of only a few of the tests and treatments MD Now Urgent Care physicians can perform:

·      Non-emergent work-related injuries

·      Drug screens

·      Breath alcohol tests

·      Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals

·      Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) physicals

·      Respirator fit tests

·      Pulmonary function tests

·    Fingerprint background checks

“Work-related injuries remain a big part of our business, in part due to convenient hours (8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week). With multiple locations throughout the tri-county area, local industries find fast, affordable healthcare. And our centers are in-network with all Workers’ Compensation carriers,” explained Lamelas.
