Employer Services

Praise for our occupational health services:
I have been working with Doctor’s Express/ AFC since they opened in Saugus. They have been a great resource for us, not only for pre-employment and drug screenings for new employees, and workers’ comp treatment for injured employees, but they also serve as an urgent care center for the employees in the area

I am very happy with the service Doctors Express in Saugus provides to The Kelly Auto Group.

Occupational Health

We at AFC Urgent Care Saugus know that if your employees are ill, business suffers.  When business suffers, the bottom line suffers.  We are here to help manage the occupational health needs of your employees.  We work with you during this process by offering streamlined record keeping, by helping to insure fast return to work for your employees, and by keeping you fully informed on your employee’s health status.  We service business of all types and sizes.  Some of the services that we provide to businesses are:
Workers’ Compensation
Our board-certified physicians ensure that your employees receive quality medical care.  They utilize best practices to treat injuries and return patients to work.  We will specify return to duty that is appropriate for each employee situation.  Our centers are convenient for treating your employees, as we have on-site lab services, x-ray, and EKG.  This convenience allows your employee to receive immediate medical attention, at one facility, during one visit.  No appointments are needed, just send your employee to our center when they need care.
Pre-Employment Physicals and Screenings
We provide a variety of Physicals and Screenings depending on your needs. Some of the types of physicals include:

 Other Employer Services
We are constantly working with Employers to look for ways to help lower their employee healthcare costs.  We do this through on-site programs with your employees.  This includes services such as on-site flu clinics and urine drug screenings.  We can meet with your employees in an open forum to discuss Urgent Care, and how it can help save them time, aggravation, and money.  And for you as an employer, when the overall employee healthcare costs are lower, the cost to insure your employees is lower.
In addition to DOT Physicals, Drug Testing, and Pre-Employment Physical services, AFC Urgent Care in Saugus MA offers these occupational health services:
