Physical examination is the process by which a doctor investigates the body of a patient for signs of disease. It generally follows the taking of the medical history – an account of the symptoms as experienced by the patient. Together with the medical history, the physical examination aids in determining the correct diagnosis and devising the treatment plan.
Our pre-employment physicals can include:
Regulatory and Compliance Examinations – establish a medical baseline for employees according to certain regulations (DOT, OSHA, etc.), and include periodic medical monitoring when indicated.
Fitness-For-Duty Examinations – confirm that employees returning from medical leave can perform their job duties.
Executive Wellness Examinations – establish baseline medical information as part of companies’ voluntary health and wellness initiatives.
Health Risk Assessments – confirm the biometric numbers/scores of employees as part of long-term health and wellness, and indicate potential areas of health risk.
Concentra physicians will carefully review your medical and occupational history before proceeding with the physical examination. A thorough medical examination typically includes the following:
Complete occupational/medical history
Evaluation of the respiratory system
Examination of head, eyes, ears, nose, and throat
Skin and lymphatic examination
Evaluation of the cardiovascular system
Visual acuity and vital signs
A titer test involves a simple blood draw. The sample is analyzed, and results are returned within 24 to 72 hours. All EmergencyMD clinics offer a full range of laboratory test services, including all antibody titer testing.
Perhaps you can’t remember for certain whether you had a case of a given disease in the past, have misplaced your immunization records over the years, or can’t get in touch with your Primary Care Provider to get your medical records. A titer test, however, will give your clinician a measure of your immunity and solve these memory and record keeping problems. Therefore, titer testing and vaccinations go hand in hand.
Titer Testing: Cost Savings
EmergencyMD makes every effort to not re-vaccinate if vaccination is not, in fact, necessary by offering titer testing at all locations and to all patients. As a result, our experienced clinicians are able to save individual patients a significant amount of money by first checking immunity to Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Varicella, Rabies, and MMR, for example.
Moreover, a titer test is virtually no risk – it merely involves a simple blood draw with results available almost immediately.
Titer testing is similarly beneficial for EmergencyMD’s corporate clients. Cost savings are evident when comparing the cost of a titer test to the cost of vaccination. Titer testing is a crucial component of any vaccine credentialing program; call EmergencyMD today to learn how to integrate this service into your company’s wellness program!

Workers’ Compensation Services from EmergencyMD
At EmergencyMD, we understand the rules that are OSHA-recordable and what are not. We know what keeps employees off work and what doesn’t. Our focus isn’t primary care, but workers’ compensation and the systems surrounding it. We focus on the balance between the workers’ comp guidelines for the injury or the illness, the needs of the employer, the needs of the patient, and the requirements of the insurance carrier. We manage the whole process, providing prompt communication to the employer and insurance carrier on the status of the employee and the claim throughout.
When an Employee is Injured on the Job
When an employee experiences a workplace injury or illness, our medical providers manage the entire episode of care. They contact employer representatives about each injury and coordinate all occupational health care services related to the employee’s healing and recovery.
Then our friendly staff members effectively communicate information required for all state- and employer-mandated workers’ compensation reports, screening results, and appointment details to employer representatives so that you are fully aware of any and all activities within the Workwell facilities related to your employee. These reports are typed and emailed to the designated company contact through our state-of-the-art medical records system. All medical records are maintained electronically.
On the employee care side, our medical providers establish the doctor/patient relationship through a detailed evaluation of the employee’s condition. Our goal is to build trust and rapport with patients so we can provide the best treatment. We provide employees with complete information that fully describes their injury or illness, the treatment guidelines and standard of care that will be implemented, and other important information. Our goal is to illustrate the importance of the injured employee’s participation and responsibility in the healing process to get him or her back to work as soon as possible.

Great responsiveness. They could have our employees ready to work in no time!!
Fantastic care and speed for all our employees. I would never use anywhere else
