Clinical Services

Our care model is to combine a thorough medical evaluation of patients with a detailed assessment of occupational and/or environmental exposures that could be contributing to the patient’s medical condition. This may involve a site visit to a worksite or home by a team led by our industrial hygienist. Often this exposure assessment leads to identification of a hazard that can be eliminated or reduced, resulting in an improvement of the patient’s clinical condition and a reduction of risk for others. (See our clinical casebook for examples!)
