Prompt Care When You Need It

Our physicians and healthcare providers offer comprehensive clinic services and telehealth video visits that promote overall well-being on the job. Services include pre-employment physicals, injury care, x-rays, vaccinations, annual health screenings, and return-to-work evaluations.

If you are an employer and would like to find out more about the available occupational medicine services we offer, please provide your information and areas of interest on the occupational medicine inquiry.  You are also welcome to simply call Urgent Care + TeleHealth directly, and we’d be happy to meet with you.

If you are a work supervisor and ready to book an appointment, please call us or fill out this online authorization for treatment form.



What if I get injured at work?

It’s important to notify your work supervisor as soon as an incident occurs and then contact the nearest Urgent Care + TeleHealth clinic for a same-day appointment. Your work supervisor can then fill out an online authorization for treatment form.

The medical team can provide post-accident first aid for injuries like scrapes, cuts, and burns to prevent infection and other complications. They also offer immediate treatment such as stitches, debris removal, and bandaging to protect your injury and promote healing.

For more serious injuries, you might need further treatment from a specialist. The medical team can evaluate your condition and refer you to that specialist. If you need to seek treatment from another provider, the team at Urgent Care + TeleHealth can perform all follow-up evaluations related to your workers’ compensation claim.

Employee Healthcare Services for Employers

Pre-employment Physicals

A pre-employment physical is an examination provided to candidates for a potential job. Urgent Care + TeleHealth providers conduct pre-employment & annual physical exams, OSHA physicals, biometric screening, physical abilities testing, and return-to-work physicals which are compliant and customized by job requirements.

TeleHealth Video Visits for Quick Advice

For relatively minor workplace injuries, Urgent Care + Telehealth offers a convenient and confidential video visit option. Workers can quickly connect with a provider over a smartphone to discuss issues and receive advice. TeleHealth visits are helpful for tight schedules and help avoid interruption to work.

Vaccinations and Travel Medicine

At Urgent Care + Telehealth, we offer comprehensive vaccinations.  We also offer travel medicine services for workers who travel internationally.  Visit Urgent Care+TeleHealth prior to your departure for your travel vaccinations or medication needs, and our providers will make sure you stay healthy and meet international entry requirements for guests.

DOT Physicals

A DOT physical is a checkup that’s required for commercial vehicle drivers by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

Drug Testing

Our providers regularly provide drug tests for employers including DOT drug tests for commercial drivers.  A drug test involves taking samples like urine, blood, or saliva of an individual, which is tested for the presence of a drug.

PPD Skin tests (Tuberculosis Screening Test)

A PPD skin test, which is also referred to as a tuberculosis test, is conducted to measure the immunity of an individual’s body in response to the injection of PPD solution into the skin. PPD stands for purified protein derivative solution derived from the tuberculosis bacteria.

Covid/Flu Testing

Since the start of the COVID pandemic, Urgent Care + TeleHealth has provided thousands of COVID-19 tests using sensitive lab equipment that provides quicker and more accurate results than at-home tests. Covid tests look for the Sars Cov 2 virus, its antigen, or the antibodies formed in the body in response to the virus. The common Covid tests performed include rapid antigen tests, rapid molecular test, and nucleic acid amplification tests. We also have Molecular flu testing at our clinics as well as COVID-19 vaccines.

Hearing Tests

We provide Hearing tests for pre-employment or annual testing needed outside of the current hearing conservation program.

A hearing test is a painless, noninvasive audiometry evaluation that measures a person’s ability to hear different sounds, pitches, or frequencies

Asthma Care

Spirometry (spy-ROM-uh-tree) is a type of pulmonary function test, commonly used in an office to assess how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale, how much you exhale and how quickly you exhale. It’s carried out using a device called a spirometer, which is a small machine attached by a cable to a mouthpiece.

Spirometry is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other conditions that affect breathing. Spirometry may also be used periodically to monitor your lung condition and check whether a treatment for a chronic lung condition is helping you breathe better.

Breath Alcohol Testing

We provide Breath alcohol screenings with a printout and confirmation if required.

A breath alcohol test, commonly called a “breathalyzer” or a “BAT,” is an instant screening that determines precisely how much alcohol a person has in their breath. Relying on a scientific principle known as “Henry’s Law,” the percent of alcohol in a person’s breath can be assumed to match the percent of alcohol in that person’s blood. As compared with blood alcohol tests, breath testing for alcohol is far more convenient, less painful, much faster, and just as accurate. Thus, breath alcohol testing has become the most popular method to detect if someone is intoxicated, and is widely used by employers, required by DOT, and administered by law enforcement.

Respirator fit testing

For jobs that require an N95 mask or respirator, we provide OSHA-accepted fit testing.

A respirator fit test is a procedure performed at Urgent Care + Telehealth to determine the proper fit of a respirator on an individual. The fit test ensures that the respirator is properly sealed to the user’s face, so that inhaled air is filtered through the respirator rather than bypassing it

Common Work Injuries We Treat

Post-Accident First Aid for Workplace Accidents

Speedy post-accident first aid is critical to protect against long-term complications. Injuries caused by workplace accidents might result in concussions, brain injury, whiplash, damaged ligaments, and herniated discs in the spine. Post-accident first aid at Urgent Care + TeleHealth is offered on a walk-in or appointment basis at our clinics in Sonoma, Napa, and Benicia. Our goal is to provide patients with the immediate attention that they require.  Wait times are generally much shorter than at an emergency room.

Back and Neck Injuries

Back and neck injuries are unfortunately common in the workplace – especially in the demanding jobs of the wine country. In these cases, our goal will be to assess the cause and then to provide treatment that speeds recovery and a return to work. Our treatment of back and neck injuries always starts with a thorough assessment, physical exam, and accurate diagnosis of the possible cause.

X Rays Following a Workplace Injury

At our urgent care clinics in Napa, Benicia, and Sonoma, we offer a digital x-ray platform.  Imaging tools like x-rays allow us to assess a disability or injury much easier, which in turn, ensures that the provider can come up with an accurate diagnosis. 

Laceration Repair

Lacerations are cuts to the skin, usually with irregular shapes and disrupted edges, and may include bleeding and bruising. In serious lacerations, these cuts go beyond the skin and may injure the associated tendons, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and even bones. At Urgent Care + TeleHealth, we most often repair lacerations with sutures. 

Foreign Body Removal

Foreign body removal is a procedure that, as the name suggests, is a way to remove a foreign object from inside the body. Foreign objects are most likely introduced into the body by sudden injury or accident. These foreign objects are not only limited to the skin and may be found in different parts of the body, including the finger, leg, stomach, ear, nose, and even the eye.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries, also known as repetitive strain injuries, are associated with damage to muscles, tendons, and nerves after continuously being exposed to repetitive motion. These injuries may be caused by activities like computer work, manual labor, painting, or even hairdressing. Our providers will assess the root cause and then provide treatment to speed recovery and a return to work.

Burn Treatment

If not treated promptly, burn injuries may lead to long-term damage to the body – including nerve damage and lack of sensation. Therefore, it’s important for workers to receive prompt first aid for burns.

Occupational Medicine FAQ

What is Occupational Medicine?

Occupational medicine, also referred to as occupational health, is a branch of healthcare that focuses on treating injuries and illnesses in the workplace. The medical providers at Urgent Care + TeleHealth are trained in occupational medicine and have the skills and experience to effectively diagnose and treat work-related injuries such as burns, breaks, or repetitive stress injuries. 

In addition, doctors who focus on occupation medicine are more aware of rules and regulations regarding managing the workforce’s health and safety. This includes being up to date about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Transportation (DOT), and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Occupational medicine allows health professionals to perform regulatory assessments and create treatment plans that are better suited for the patient.

The clinics are managed by emergency medicine physician Dr. Ian Ahwah, who has 25 years of experience treating injuries. Our goal is to help our patients feel better fast so they can promptly return to work.

What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation or Workers’ Comp is a type of insurance used for a work-related injury or illness that requires more extensive care than first aid and are reportable on the OSHA 300 log.

Examples or Workers Comp injuries include:

  • Hurting your back at work in a fall.
  • Getting burned by a chemical that splashes on your skin.
  • Getting hurt in a car accident while making deliveries.
  • Repeated exposures at work, such as hurting your wrist from making the same motion over and over.
  • Losing your hearing because of constant loud noise at work.

Our goal at Urgent Care + TeleHealth is to provide patients with the immediate care they need and provide workplace restrictions so the patient can return to work with as little downtime as possible while still receiving outstanding medical care.

What are First Aid Visits

Many employers are aware they need to keep an OSHA 300 log of their occupational injuries.  However, OSHA does not require First Aid claims to be logged for reporting purposes.  So, how does OSHA define First Aid?

California Labor Code Section 5401 defines “first aid” as:

Any one-time treatment, and any follow up visit for the purpose of observation of minor scratches, cuts, burns, splinters, or other minor industrial injuries, which do not ordinarily require medical care. This one-time treatment, and follow up visit for the purpose of observation, is considered first aid even though provided by a physician or registered professional personnel.

Examples of First Aid Visits:

  1. Using non-prescription medications at non-prescription strength.
  2. Administering tetanus immunizations.
  3. Cleaning, flushing, or soaking wounds on the skin surface.
  4. Using wound coverings, such as bandages “Band Aids”, gauze pads, etc. or using Steri-strips or butterfly bandages.
  5. Using hot or cold therapy
  6. Using any totally non-rigid means of support, such as elastic bandages, wraps, non-rigid back belts. etc.
  7. Using temporary immobilization devices while transporting an accident victim (splints, slings, neck collars, or back boards).
  8. Drilling a fingernail or toenail to relieve pressure or draining fluids form blisters.
  9. Using eye patches
  10. Using simple irrigation or a cotton swab to remove foreign bodies not embedded in or adhered to the eye.
  11. Using irrigation, tweezers, cotton swab, or other simple means to remove splinters or foreign material from areas other than the eye. Using finger guards
  12. Using massages
  13. Drinking fluids to relieve heat stress

Even if a claim meets these criteria, and the employee seeks medical treatment, you are still required to file the claim with your insurance carrier.
