About Us

Our Team, Dedicated to Yours

OccMD relies upon respected physicians and specialists, a highly-qualified group of nurse case managers, and professional staff dedicated to achieving the best medical outcomes for the injured worker.

We continually focus on providing the most appropriate evidence-based treatment for the injury or illness, from the right provider, at the right time. OccMD avoids workers’ compensation system pitfalls by focusing on the acute injury, establishing an effective plan of treatment with the most qualified physician, and eliminating duplication, delay and the constant need for opinion-after-opinion. This results in high levels of satisfaction for injured workers and clients, including dozens of the most-respected employers headquartered across the U.S.
