Russell J. Green, M.S., M.D., C.I.M.E., OWNER
Dr. Russell Green, the founder of Work Health Solutions (WHS), has focused on occupational medicine since 1991. But his interest in biomechanics and ergonomics can be traced back to his days as an electrical engineering student at Southern Methodist University, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He went on to attend the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. After spending more than a decade as a board-certified family physician in New Zealand, Dr. Green returned to the United States (along with his family) to dedicate himself exclusively to occupational healthcare. His extensive background as a general practitioner, along with his certification in occupational medicine by the American Board of Preventive Medicine, made him especially valuable within the medical community. This expertise resulted in his appointment as the Director of Occupational Medicine for healthcare facilities in Joplin, Mo., and Tulsa, Okla.
Outside of the medical community, WHS is valued not only for its expertise, but also for its integrity. WHS is one of the most widely respected clinics in Oklahoma when it comes to performing independent medical evaluations (IMEs). In occupational medicine, there are sometimes disputes between an employee’s (or attorney’s) preferred doctor and an employer’s (or company) doctor. When such disputes occur, regulators seek out trusted members of the medical community to perform impartial IMEs. Judges routinely turn to WHS for guidance in these matters because no occupational healthcare clinic in the state has a better record of explaining complex medical matters in terms that are clear, compassionate and conscientious. Since opening in 2006, WHS has provided hundreds of IMEs, consistently demonstrating that our interest is not in helping either side win a dispute, but simply in providing the best possible diagnosis, prognosis and plan of care for injured workers.
