Occupational Consulting Reviews
As Chief Human Resources Officer in Healthcare it is always a priority to place focus on work place wellness. Getting employees to engage in the topic can be a significant challenge. I have tried different methods to both transfer critical knowledge to our employees on work place health and to get employees to put his information to use. I engaged Dr. Teehan to do a number of things for us focused on wellness. He recorded videos walking people through various topics of interest such as heart health, diet, exercise, travel vaccines and preparation, and many others. He used slides and spoken dialogue to explain and illustrate the information and its benefits. Secondly Dr. Teehan came into our offices over several months and held live audience talks, engaging the employees in discussion, inspiring them to consider alternative practices to improve their overall health. He spent time educating, answering questions and stayed on site afterwards to conduct 1:1 detailed discussions on topics personal to the individual. I cannot say enough how helpful this was and how well received it was by our employees. Dr. Teehan is knowledgeable, approachable, relatable and flexible as a corporate wellness partner. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering this topic and will be using him again in the near future.

My company, Archway Health, hired Dr. Teehan and several other physicians to help us better understand what great specialty care looks like from the perspective of a primary care physician. Key questions we were looking to answer included - What do you expect from specialists? What information would you like to know before referring a patient to a specialists? What are the most important factors patients' should consider when seeking various types of specialty care? How can you tell the difference between a great specialist and an OK one?
Our teams met regularly and dug into these questions across many types of clinical care, including Breast Cancer, Infertility, Diabetes, Knee Replacement, Pregnancy, Congestive Heart Failure, among others.
Dennis was a very active and thoughtful contributor in this process. He brought an excellent perspective to the work due to his unique and varied background as a busy community based primary care physician, experience within large academic health systems, his work as a former Medical Director for a large employer, his degree in Public Health, and his experience as a Community Leader. I found him to always be insightful, responsive and engaging and very effective in helping us meet our goals. I would recommend Dennis to any company looking for an experienced, thoughtful physician consultant with a diverse background.

I worked closely with Dr. Teehan when I was in a leadership capacity at a major, nationally known municipal fire department, the nation’s oldest.
Dr. Teehan served as our Medical Director at this time. He provided not only excellent clinical care to our employees for work related illness and injury, but also consultation and guidance on disability management, infection control and our health and wellness program.
Our organization thrived under Dr. Teehan's expertise, leadership and consultation and I would absolutely recommend any organization looking to improve health, safety and wellness initiatives to work with Dr. Teehan.
