Let’s be honest… this industry has become a corporate mill, and finding compassionate doctors who truly care about treating and educating injured workers is a rarity.
Dr. Bloch’s commitment to the workers’ compensation system is and has always been to provide excellent care without sacrificing patient education. This is the first step in making both workers and their employers happy – even if injuries are major, serious complications have occurred, or if full duty is not a reality. The ideal goal with any patient is to teach them to understand the injury, their treatments and the rehabilitation process.
In addition to one’s physical health, the workers’ compensation system adds tremendous impact to one’s financial, mental, and familial health. The fastest and most efficient route to healing is required and for this reason, injured workers need to be diagnosed and treated with the same tenacity we would our top athletes.
Fair evaluation and treatment includes:
- Starting with the injured employee
- Making treatment decisions based on the patient’s best interest without sacrificing workers’ comp guidelines.
- Using only the best facilities and specialists, those Dr. Bloch would trust to treat himself and his family.
- For injuries requiring work restrictions, striving towards a safe return to duty – not encouraging disability.
- Providing accurate and reasonable impairment ratings that are easy to understand and unlikely to be challenged.
- Determine appropriate future maintenance as allowed by the workers’ compensation guidelines.
