Efficient & Effective Communication


DIGITAL PHYSICIANS PROGRESS REPORTS

When an employee is injured, the employer needs information fast.  Dr.Grabow will complete a detailed Upper Extremity Injury Physician's Progress Report form and will fax and email the Information to the employer and insurance adjuster each time an injured employee is seen.

ONLINE DOCUMENTATION

Dr.Grabow has a dedicated team of office staff available to help answer questions and maintain individual relationships with adjusters and nurse case managers to ensure the needs of your injured workers are addressed promptly.

PERSONALIZED SERVICE

At the Grabow Hand to Shoulder Center, all patients receive individualized care and have ample time to ask questions and receive explanations regarding their diagnosis and treatment options. In order to ensure the patient plays an active role in his or her care, Dr.Grabow dedicates a significant amount of every office visit to the education of his patients regarding their diagnosis and treatment plan. Every patient is provided a Patient Education Prescripiton at the end of the visit, so that they may further review the information Dr.Grabow has provided. This not only increases patient satisfaction but also compliance with their care.

Expert Care for All Workers

DR.GRABOW CARES ABOUT YOUR PATIENT

Dr.Grabow's goal is to provide high quality, personalized, education based care to all his patients. The injured worker is no exception!

Staged Work Return Regimen


RETURN TO WORK WITH APPLIED THERAPIES

Quickly returning an injured worker to the workplace is in everyone's best interest. Most employee's benefit more from restricted work activities rather than full time off, due to the psychological and physical benefits of on-the-job activities. Additionally, in many circumstances manual labor, especially when it involves the hands and wrists, is incorporated into the therapy regimen to improve a patient's hand and wrist function. Dr.Grabow, works with each employee and adjuster or case manager to find creative ways to return the employee to work that will maximize function and minimize time to full active duty.


EMPLOYER WORK PROFILES

We are compiling on-line Employer Work Profiles detailing specific return-to-work policies, communication information and individual standards for each employer to facilitate the employee's return to the workplace.

EMPAHSIS ON INJURY PREVENTION

Dr.Grabow's goal is not simply to return the injured patient back to work, but to help them avoid future injuries or a relapse of their problem in the future. To this end he further educates his patients in proper ergonomics and workplace safety and provides extensive online educational resources to his patients, their adjusters and case managers, and employers as well.
