What is Occupational Medicine?
At BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services, we offer occupational medicine services. Occupational health, as it's sometimes called, focuses on the prevention and treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses. Our physicians are specially trained in diagnosing work-related injuries and illnesses, making them more effective at this treatment than a standard general practitioner. We are up to date on workers' comp, as well as OSHA, FAA, and DOT guidelines so we meet required expectations. Our friendly team is available to work with employers and assist in creating a return-to-work program following an employee's injury. We know how important your workers are so we are here to help them get back to work as soon as possible. For more information, contact our clinical director Dr. Dwane Allen at our Lewisville, TX office.
"Was surprised to see you guys offering suboxone treatment! I've been seeing Dr. Gray for about 2 years and have been suggesting that they integrate it into their services. I have been doing it for about a month now and I am definitely impressed by the results."- A.W. / Google / Oct 03, 2021
"I have been a patient at BHFS for about 6 months now and although their service was top notch, I wasn't seeing phenomenal improvement in myself until they started their suboxone treatment with me. I feel like I am finally the man I am supposed to be. Very grateful they added this addition to their clinic as not many clinics in my area provide this service."- J.H. / Google / Oct 02, 2021
