"I am writing to express our gratitude with Western Medical Group for assisting the City of Torrance Fire Department again this past year (2013).
"Each year, the Fire Department is required to provide TB testing and Flu Shots to our personnel. Prior to 2012, we had to schedule individual personnel to visit [another occupational medical clinic] in Torrance. Because of the shift schedules that operations personnel are required to work this resulted in excessive overtime charges, missed and rescheduled appointments, and sometimes, no testing at all.
"As a result, I contacted Western Medical Group to see if they could possibly accommodate our schedules. Not only were they able to assist us, they allowed us to schedule several shift days/times so that we capture as many personnel as possible.
"The staff from Western Medical was fantastic, and we couldn't be happier with their services. We will most certainly solicit their assistance again next year."

"Just wanted to extend my thanks and appreciation to you and Western Medical Group for coming out to our orientation and administering the TB Tests to our youth.

WMG has been very proactive in managing our employees' medical cases and identifying work restrictions requiring accommodation under the auspices of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The Harbor Department is highly satisfied with the service and attention to detail provided by the WMG staff. Their quality of care and communication with both the Risk Management and Human Resources Divisions has been very knowledgeable and helpful."
