Workman’s Compensation Evaluations

We provide a careful objective assessment of your medical condition, course of treatment, whether there is permanent impairment and to what degree, and the ability to work in the future. Please check with your employer prior to booking this type of appointment to make sure that it is approved by the company to be evaluated by our office.

Lifestyle Counseling

Establishing healthy habits is a key to good health.  Our nurse practitioners will answer your questions to help you make good choices about nutrition, weight management, substance use, smoking, and use of alcohol.  We provide evidence-based information to help you make the decisions that are right for you.

Health Education

As a nurse practitioner practice, we value health education as a key component of care.  We will answer your questions, explain your medical condition, make sure you understand your plan of care, and provide information about tests that are performed or medications that are prescribed.   

Stress Management and Emotional/Mental Health

We all experience the ups and downs of everyday life. Sometimes the stresses of life take a toll on your emotional and mental health.  Our nurse practitioners are able to assess your need for support and/or treatment.  In some cases, we will initiate treatment ourselves.  In other situations, we will ensure that you receive proper referrals for the support/treatment you need. 

Telehealth Visits

Many medical/health issues either do not require a physical exam or require only a minimal exam and may be treated through video conferencing. Visits such as counseling for contraception or mental health, monitoring long-term health problems, discussion of laboratory and imaging results, teaching about a health condition, and many other health issues not requiring an extensive physical exam may be performed successfully via telehealth.  Some aspects of a physical exam may be done on a telehealth visit, with careful coaching from our providers.

The benefits of a telehealth visit are:

  • Convenience and safety, avoiding a trip to the office
  • Reduced waiting time to be seen and less time away from home or workplace
  • No need for childcare

To enable Telehealth visits, we have a secure, encrypted, HIPAA compliant service available through most devices with an internet connection and camera (computer, tablet, smart phone). We will email you complete instructions on how to easily connect.  Please be aware that telehealth appointments are considered office visits, and insurance will be billed. Most insurances are covering these charges, but it is always good to check coverage with your individual plan.
