Pre-Employment Physical Exams

Pre-employment physical exam protocols consist of a medical exam (including a medical questionnaire, history evaluation and admin process) as well as specific tests depending on work conditions. Pre-employment physicals allow you to make sure your candidates satisfy the physical demands of their prospective position.

These evaluations help in getting a Day 0 picture of your candidates to validate whether they have a pre-existing condition. Their other benefit is to reduce the risk for you and hire only the best candidates. Physicals allow you to detect any personal condition likely to increase work-related accidents or illnesses.

The doctor will judge the candidate’s likelihood to satisfy the position’s demands in his medical evaluation report.  Our doctor is here to guide you in hiring your employees and to make sure they have the necessary abilities, so they can safely work and prevent work-related accidents and absenteeism-related costs.

Generally, you should be able to get an appointment within 24 to 48 hours and get results verbally within 24 to 48 hours. It is possible, however, that these deadlines may not be satisfied for reasons outside of our control, but they will work for most pre-employment physicals performed in our clinic.


Independent Medical Expertise

When you get our Medical Expertise Service, you get a fast assessment and a specialized diagnosis, with regards to your employee’s condition and history. Our expert general practitioner will use all his experience to give you an objective picture of your employee’s recovery process and the appropriate measures for your employee’s going back to work so that you can avoid or settle disputes. Medical Expertise is an essential aspect to manage your professional wrong or disability cases efficiently.

The worker is seen without delay at our clinic to get all the medical tests that are necessary to assess the employee’s medical condition.

Medical Expertise is the only way to get solid medical evidence in case of a legal dispute.

You have two options, depending on how complex your case is:

  • Regular Expertise
  • Extended Expertise

Following the medical exam, you will receive a short written or verbal report according to your needs within 24 hours and a comprehensive and written expertise report within a maximum of 5 business days.


Drug Tests

Pre- and post-employment drug and/or alcohol tests are also available to make sure your employees are fit to work and fully efficient at work.

Late Arrival Policy

In our efforts to offer the best care and minimize wait time for all our patients, we implemented a late arrival policy. If you are late for your appointment, please notify us immediately by text message at 819-200-9119 or by phone at 819-595-0790

  • If you are less than 10 minutes late : the allowed time will be reduced but it is still possible for us to provide service for the care needed.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late : the reduced time may be considerable and we may not have enough time to fully accommodate the type of service or care needed.

You will have the choice to:

  • Attend your appointment knowing that we may not be able to accommodate the full appointment time required for your health care and you may have to schedule another appointment for completion of the assessment; or

  • Reschedule another appointment in order to maximize your appointment time with our health professional.

All clients are encouraged to arrive at the office 15 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to register and complete any required paperwork.

Appointments must be cancelled at least 48h prior to the scheduled date and time. Fees equivalent to 50% of the appoinment price will be charged for all appointments cancelled with less than 48h notice or for no shows.
