Workers’ Compensation

Tahoe WoRx providers ensure that quality care is provided after a work-related injury.

Our Tahoe WoRx team provides a customized treatment plan for each individual that involves immediate treatment and care, documentation and monitoring of work-related conditions, and communication with the employer. 

Drug & Alcohol Testing

Many industries require employees to be screened for drugs or alcohol that could potentially inhibit them from safely performing their job. Drug and alcohol testing could also be required following workplace injuries, automobile accidents, or by a court order.

Tahoe WoRx offers a variety of tests, including:

  • Breath Alcohol Test
  • 5 Panel Non-DOT Urine Drug Test
  • DOT Drug Screening
  • Rapid 6 Panel Drug Screen (instant)

Pre-Employment Physicals

A pre-employment physical evaluates for chronic medical conditions or physical limitations that could prevent a potential employee from performing the routine duties of a job as well as determine if the job is a good fit.

Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier & DMV Required Physicals

All of our providers are FMCSA certified to perform these physicals.  Keeping drivers safe is our number one priority.  A regular Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is required for professional drivers of commercial motor vehicles by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA.) The DOT physical is designed to detect health limitations that could inhibit a driver from safely operating a commercial vehicle.  This is a federal designation and can be performed for any state license.
