Keeping the Shoreline Working

When Abhijay Karandikar first entered medical school, he didn’t know much about the field of occupational medicine, and didn’t envision becoming a specialist in it. But by the time he entered his residency, he recognized it as an emerging specialty that offered a unique opportunity for a wide range of responsibilities and services.

“It’s truly multi-faceted, which is what I find rewarding about it,” said Dr. Karandikar, who now sees patients in the Backus Family Health Center.

Karandikar offers a wide range of job-related medical services, including:

  • Department of Transportation medical exams
  • Drug testing and medical review officer (MRO) services
  • Management of work-related injuries and illnesses
  • Disability exams
  • Vaccines and other travel medicine services
  • Population health management
  • Employee health
  • Medical surveillance
  • HAZMAT physical exams
  • Second opinion evaluations – determining work relatedness, impairment, etc.
  • Independent Medical Evaluations
  • Fitness for Duty evaluations
