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 offering you appropriate care and minimize wait time for all our patients, we have implemented a late arrival policy. If you are late for your appointment, please contact us immediately at 819-595-0790 to notify us. If we are unable to answer your call, please leave a message on our voicemail.

  • If a client is less than 10 minutes late : the allotted appointment time will be reduced but it is still to provide service for the care needed.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late : the reduced allotted appointment 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. 

We aim to make your visit a pleasant one. We do recognize that situations arise that are out of your control. We will try to accommodate late‐comers as best as possible, but cannot compromise on the quality and timely care provided to our other patients

We appreciate your compliance and understanding with this policy so that we can continue to provide excellent health care as well as excellent customer service. 

Thank you!
