Many medical and psychiatric conditions can impair a person’s work performance, sometimes causing risk of harm to others or interfering with workflow. Employers may have questions about whether a person is ready to return to work. Dr. David D. O’Grady conducts assessments to determine if an individual is able to perform his or her job duties in a manner that is safe, reliable and consistent. While aiming to protect the privacy of the employee as much as possible, the evaluation answers key questions so managers can be confident in worker safety and reliability.

Contact Dr. O’Grady for a personal consultation and arrange a fitness-for-duty evaluation for your employee.
