City of El Segundo

The City of EI Segundo has contracted services through U.S. HealthWorks for several years. Recently, the city completed the contract renewal process and U.S. HealthWorks displayed patience and professionalism through the entire process. U.S. HealthWorks provides an extremely cost-effective method of delivery of pre-employment and occupational medical services, with a lower average case cost than other occupational medical providers.

This will be the City of EI Segundo's sixth year with U.S. HealthWorks. In addition to successfully implementing the City's pre-employment drug testing and medical examination protocols, U.S. HeatlthWorks has provided a variety of medical protocols and services for EI Segundo Police Department arrestees and coordinated the establishment of a Hepatitis Twinrix Vaccination Program for job classifications identified as eligible per Cal OSHA. The service provided by Account Manager, CatherineD'Alessandro and her staff is impeccable.

I am particularly impressed with the follow up and availability of U.S. HealthWorks staff. Their dedication and commitment to provide customer service is much appreciated. We have always received an immediate response on our requests and inquiries.

I look forward to continuing our relationship with U.S. HealthWorks. I gladly recommend U.S. HealthWorks to any organization requiring pre-employment and occupational medical services

Georgia L. Atwood

I want to let you know what a great team you have at U. S. HealthWorks (4700 Northgate Boulevard, Ste. 100, Sacramento, CA 95834).

On May 29, 2012 I had a mishap where I work part time. I tripped over a carpet and did considerable skin damage to my left arm. I was taken to U. S. HealthWorks and was cared for immediately. Dr. Sanjeev Batra saw to it that I had an appointment two days later with Wound Care at Roseville Sutter Hospital. (They had no openings until the following week but worked me in at his insistance.)

Dr. Batra and his team gave me excellent care. The girls at the front desk, the nurses, x-ray technician, and all I came in contact with were pleasant to work with. My arm has healed beautifully. I have heard horror stories of working with Workman’s Comp but I must say, my experience with U. S. HealthWorks couldn't have been better.

So glad everything went well for us Danny! So appreciate you and your staff and your wonderful ‘bedside’ manners. Thank you for being so positive, kind, and patient with our young people.

General Dynamics

"They were very pleasant at the front desk, and during the check-in process too. They also were very accommodating to my schedule, and Dr. Bucklin took the time to take the x-ray of my arm (which I was very glad he did – I just wanted to make sure nothing was broken!!). He also had very good suggestions for treating the injury, which proved very helpful in my recovery."

In my experience, U.S. HealthWorks is a great partner to have when you’re dealing with workers’ compensation issues. They know what they’re doing; they always provide great care to our employees without overtreating them and they respond quickly and communicate issues clearly and that’s a huge help to me.

General Dynamics

For more than 10 years, we’ve turned first to U.S. HealthWorks to meet our occupational healthcare needs. That’s because they are always available to fill my workers’ compensation requests and immediately treat our employees with excellent service. The relationship is a true and trusted partnership and I definitely recommend them to any company looking for occupational medical care. They’re the best.

Waterford on South Hill

Dear Kris:

I am sending this letter to communicate our appreciation of the long standing business relationship between Waterford on South Hill and U.S. HealthWorks. The close proximity of our businesses helps us access your services quickly and efficiently. Certainly, this relates to the convenient neighborhood location of your clinic but it really goes much farther. Your hours of operation meet most of our needs, your systems are well organized, and communication/follow up is always prompt and pleasant. We receive excellent response when we seek consultation regarding circumstances associated with occupational injuries and/or drug screens. An unexpected but highly appreciated benefit of working with your company is the opportunity on many occasions to have frank discussions with the doctors in unusual situations. Finally, there seems to be good longevity in key positions such as your receptionist that facilitates easy and consistent communication. Thank you for outstanding customer service over many years.

Sincerely,
Jeffrey P. Bair
Executive Director

Dear Dr. Portnoy:

I don’t expect that you would remember me, but I was a patient of yours about 9 years ago. Anyway, I was very fortunate that you treated me that day. The reason I came in was because I had a bad case of bronchitis, and my own doctor was unavailable to see me for at least a couple of days. After you examined me, you asked me if knew I had a “serious” heart murmur. No other doctor brought that to my attention, including a family practitioner who had seen me weeks before. I ended up looking for a new primary care doctor who promptly sent for an echocardiogram. Upon getting the results, my new doctor referred me to a cardiologist. Apparently, I had severed mitral regurgitation and was told I needed open heart surgery. I was extremely upset so I went to a second cardiologist for another opinion. The diagnosis was the same, and I ended up having minor valve repair surgery in February 2002. The second cardiologist I saw, who is still my physician told me if I had waited much longer, I would have ended up on a heart transplant list.

I discovered recently that you were the Medical Director at U.S. HealthWorks, and I was so glad to be given the opportunity to express my gratitude. You are a very compassionate and caring individual, clearly an excellent diagnostician. Although it seems inadequate, thank you so much for helping to save my life.

May you and your loved ones have a happy, healthy and prosperous new year and everything good in the future.

Kruger Foods

We are sending this letter to let you know that we are very pleased with the quality of service your U.S. HealthWorks Stockton (East) location provides. We have always been able to rely on your flexibility and courteous service. Your staff has consistently made extra efforts to assist us with any requests or questions that we might have. We have also appreciated the friendly business relationship we have had with your company.

We believe the level of care that our employees receive when they come to U.S. HealthWorks is great and that Dr. Eck really does his best to treat and get our employees back to work healthy and happy. Also the communication that we receive from him and the back office staff is wonderful. We really appreciate the open lines of communication that we have directly with the providers.

We would also like to thank Marie Chevalier for always being helpful and attending to all our requests, and the girls in the front too, for always helping us when we have any questions over the phone. Thank you all for your help.

We sincerely appreciate your responsiveness and the way you conduct business. We look forward to doing business with you for years to come.

Grocers Supply

U.S. HealthWorks National MRO came highly recommended to Grocers Supply and have not disappointed us. They have handled our drug testing needs since 2005. We are a very challenging account; U.S. HealthWorks National MRO handles our account professionally and truly understands the complex DOT regulations and the drug testing process. While our account is probably not their largest, we are treated by Dr. Bucklin and Kara Jensen as if we were their only account; we receive prompt and efficient attention when needed. As our organization continues to grow, we are excited to have a partner such as U.S. HealthWorks National MRO handling our entire drug testing program.

The Geffen Contemporary Pacific Design Center
It was a pleasure meeting with you and Mark Gonzalez today. I appreciate your taking the time to arrange a meeting with Dr. Pachachi, and for Sonia Lovato to give a tour of the facility. I was impressed with how smoothly everything appeared to be running in the medical center, even with a "full house" in the waiting room, and I was especially pleased with the close proxtmity of your Los Angeles location to MOCA.

Cintas
On behalf of the Cintas Sacramento location, we would like to recognize and thank you for your valuable assistance with our recent file project. Your team, Mary Frackowiak , Ray Usui and yourself showed exceptional customer service.

We very much appreciate that the team meets our needs with a sense of urgency. Our location recognizes that we could not accomplish this project without the help of your team. The customer service that we received showed an example of U.S. Healthworks business character and core values.

We are very proud of your association with our organization.

Just wanted to let you know you're appreciated. You always communicate your findings and concerns with all of our employee visits. Your updates and concerns show great support to our employees and our business. Understanding our transitional work program and using it whenever possible is an important business practice for us. This has helped make our relationship the success that it is.

Thank you for all that you do. We couldn't do it without you and the staff at U.S. HealthWorks.

Associated Energy Systems
Back in November, I wrote a letter in regards to how the staff in your West Sacramento branch was amazing, and this was after only one visit. This may have been a bit hasty and maybe I should have waited till I was finished and recovered before I gave such praise.

AMAZING is an understatement for the West Sacramento staff.

It is now 4 months later and I am done with all my appointments and my back is back to normal. All I can say is......well I don't have the words to express how good I was treated and taken care of. Every time I was in there, they were always smiling and greeted me when I walked in. The atmosphere was like a family and made me feel welcome. I never thought I would say that I enjoyed going to my appointments, but the truth is, I miss going and seeing my Doctor! She took such good care of me, I really felt like she cared, she wanted me better. She is amazing! Thank you Dr. Accinelli, so much!

Thank you to the staff! From the front desk to the ladies taking my blood pressure and temperature, to my Physical Therapist and to my Chiropractor, thank you all!

And to the staff, I hope you're not sick of my face, you will all be seeing me again if I need a doctor because I am not going back to my other doctor. My experience was that good........EVERY TIME!

Thank you!

Washington State Department of Transportation
The Washington State Department of Transportation's Eastern Region employs approximately 500 employees working in a geographical area that encompasses seven counties. Unfortunately, as the result of employees occasionally becoming injured, my office may interact with medical providers in each of these seven counties.

The purpose of this letter is simply to let you know that U.S. HealthWorks physicians are the only doctors that have ever made "unsolicited" calls to my office upon completing the examination of one of our injured workers. The fact that you physicians' call us certainly helps in expediting that injured worker back into the workplace and makes our job much easier.

Please pass on our "thanks" to your doc's and keep up the good work!

San Francisco Zoo
This letter is to express our appreciation for the services of Brenda Moore and her staff. U.S. HealthWorks has contracted with the San Francisco Zoological Society to perform a variety of medical services for our staff. These services include worker's compensation evaluation and treatment, DOT physical exams, vaccines/inoculations and flu shots. I have always found the staff to be very helpful. Documentation on the services performed by U.S. HealthWorks is always submitted to us in a timely fashion. The medical staff is responsive and they keep our administrative staff informed of worker's compensation injuries and the recommended treatment plan.

I would definitely recommend the services of U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group.
