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 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 office today!

"Jason, my eldest son, and Marcus, my youngest are both dealing with depression. Because of that they are having some issues with weight. Put them in for depression conseling but our therapist, Dr. Gray suggested we put them in the children's weight loss program. Since weight gain is intertwined with depression i agreed but I didnt really think it would have much of a difference. Everytime they come back from a session they are both different children. They have made friends and found support through the weight loss program and actually have fun working out with the other children in the program. Soso grateful thank you!"- M.F. / Google / Mar 21, 2022
"my husband heard about bhfs on google so we decided to give it a try for my daughter Landrea since our primary doctor has been booked due to covid. We did a walk in and their receptionist got us in, in 10 minutes. She was treated so warmly compared to our other doctor. They had us feeling like family. Sat us down, asked about our medical history and truly got to know us. You can't get that just anywhere. Thinking about coming here permanently."- N.E. / Google / Mar 21, 2022
