We understand the need for prompt, thorough and excellent medical care for the injured worker.
At the office of Dr. Pedlow, we value our relationship with Case Managers and Insurance Adjusters and understand your desire to obtain prompt, thorough and excellent medical care for the injured worker. As a work injury can have a significant impact on one’s professional and personal life, we want to minimize the economic impact, physical suffering and emotional strain of work-related injuries on the injured worker. We offer timely and comprehensive evaluations, promptly initiate treatment modalities, and utilize surgery when indicated. With an emphasis on accessibility and communication, we work closely with case managers and adjusters to form a strong partnership when addressing all the needs of an injured worker. In addition to quality care, these needs often include a return to work criteria and restrictions, risk assessment, and physical capability evaluations. By tailoring individualized treatment to the needs of the worker, our goal is to relieve discomfort, improve function, and return the injured employee to work as appropriate.
