While we often care for individual illnesses and injuries, DoctorsCare is also proud of the occupational medicine services that are available to employers in Clarksville, Montgomery County and surrounding areas.
Our physicians have considerable experience and training in treating work-related injuries and illnesses, giving us the unique ability to diagnose and treat job-related issues more effectively and efficiently. Our promise to our occupational medicine partners is to care for employees promptly and professionally, giving them the tools to recover and to get back to work with the appropriate accommodations. Likewise, we pledge to communicate clearly, regularly and candidly with the employer to help facilitate the return to work process. Our goal is to keep your business thriving with a healthy workforce.
Common work-related issues we see are strains, back injuries, cuts, burns, wound care and eye injuries. Many of the routine tests we do for employers include drug screens, vision, hearing, breath alcohol testing, pulmonary function tests and respiratory tests and fittings. We are also certified to offer multiple types of physical exams for employment, including those for pre-employment, DOT, non-DOT, FAA, INS and executives.
Our goal is a healthy community, so we often partner with local businesses to offer health programs and trainings on site with local employers. With this partnership, a DoctorsCare physician can be on-site for any employer to conduct customized work-site programs. To work with our team, please contact our office. We welcome the opportunity to work together.
Our team is also available for counseling services and EAP programs, and our in-office EKG, X-ray and laboratory services make DoctorsCare a one-stop shop for occupational health services.

What is Medical Surveillance?
Due to the nature of their work, some workers are at risk of being exposed to, or are regularly exposed to, various hazards. Medical surveillance tracks the effectiveness of an employer’s safety and prevention program. Our providers help employers reduce workers’ exposure to occupational hazards, reducing the risk of injury and Illness.
What we provide
