Advanced Occupational Medical Center- L. A. Jurkowski MD
So about my visit at MD Today Urgent Care... Well I sprained my ankle playing a pick-up basketball game a few weeks back. It hurt like a... yeah, and swelled up like a peach! I live right off I-15, so I decided to try out MD Today Urgent Care. I was blown away by my visit - Not just by the clean facility, but by the personal level of care provided by the staff and physician. I got right in with no wait after I filled out my paperwork. The Medical Staff was very friendly, genuinely interested in how I got injured. Oh, and they accepted my PPO insurance (always a plus), just had to pay my $25 co-pay. Anyways, Once they got a look at my ankle, they wanted to make sure nothing was seriously wrong, so they went ahead and took an X-ray of my foot (& Gave me a digital copy - kinda cool), but luckily it turned out it wasn't broken. They told me to R-I-C-E (Rest Ice Compression Elevate) and the doc gave me a prescription for swelling. Picked up the script at the Vons across the way and that was that! Such a convenient and charming a place! I couldn't imagine having spent my night with a sprained ankle in an ER. I'd highly recommend MD Today Urgent Care for any non-life threatening emergency to my friends and family.
Tips & Advices
Occupational medicine clinics can be utilized for services like pre-employment screenings and physicals. They also conduct tests like EKGs and medical examinations.
Occupational medicine physicians can treat a range of conditions, from illnesses contracted on the job, to physical maladies sustained in accidents, or over the worker's lifetime.
Occupational medicine was generally referred to as "industrial medicine" before the practice become focused on more than just heavy industries, like oil and gas and manufacturing. Industrial medicine, as it's understood today, is a refined sub-branch of occupational medicine with an exclusive focus on those settings.
An occupational medicine consultant is someone who collaborates with employers and other organizations on promoting health and safety in the workforce. They may devise strategies for outreach, as well as protocols in the events of an accident.
Injuries and illnesses not considered severe enough for the ER can be treated at occupational medicine clinics. These facilities, like urgent care, specialize in treating lower-tier cases, but which still require immediate attention. Occupational medicine clinics can conduct X-rays and blood testing, and might also be able to refer patients to doctors in the field.
