June 21, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Memphis, TN. 6/18/10. The physicians and staff members of OccuMed have announced the debut of their new website for use by patients and colleagues. Located at 1785 Nonconnah Boulevard, Suite 120, and staffed by Drs. Lloyd Robinson and Marlah Mardis, OccuMed is a full service provider of primary care, workers compensation, occupational medicine, and physical therapy.
Listed as www.occumedtn.com, the site is already proving to be an asset to the practice. Patients are utilizing it to eliminate the need for a phone call. As a result, those who still opt to call are able to be assisted more quickly. Patients who are new to the practice are taking advantage of the ability to learn about each physician prior to selecting one, and they can download the new patient forms and bring them to their appointment already completed. According to Alison Eidson, Practice Administrator, "We understand that a visit to the physician's office can often make a person very nervous and uneasy. By offering this site as a tool for familiarization, we can disseminate a lot of helpful information to make our patients feel more comfortable."
In addition to providing information about the practice, the Occumed website also allows patients to perform practical functions related to their care. Users of the site have the ability to request an appointment online, print forms which would normally be mailed or handed out at check-in, request a copy of their records, record a change of address, make payment toward a balance, and contact someone in administration.
According to Dr. Lloyd Robinson, medical director for the practice, "This will be a major enhancement to the services we are able to provide as physicians. By referring our patients to an online avenue, we can now provide service twenty-four hours a day. We are extremely excited that our practice is now able to offer this level of technology."
OccuMed is a full service family practice and occupational health clinic. Aside from providing compassionate care to the entire family, the practice also contracts with numerous local employers to provide pre-employment physicals, drug screens, preventive medicine, and treatment of workplace injuries. Additionally, OccuMed houses a full-time physical therapy department which allows patients to experience their rehabilitation on-site, without having to be referred to another facility. For more information on the services of OccuMed, call (901) 345-6700, or visit them on their new website at www.occumedtn.com.
