Dr. Timothy Perrin, MD
Dr. Perrin has developed a special interest in the challenges of treating injured workers in the California workers' compensation system, which has gone through a number of legislative changes. For over twenty years, he has been a Qualified Medical Examiner for the State of California and a member of the California Society of Industrial Medicine and Surgery. Located half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles, he has one of the few practices in the area willing to evaluate and treat injured workers, who often present with complex situations requiring multidisciplinary treatment from multiple medical specialists.

Dr. Perrin was my God-send. He took the time to look at me as a person and truly care about the outcome of my recovery. I will forever be grateful to the manner and depth of caring that Dr. Perrin and Linda, his nurse, expressed to me. When I first arrived at his office I felt that I was going to face a dreaded attitude by virtue of being a ":worker's comp" patient. They were genuine, concerned, and my recovery absolutely mattered. I attribute the improved quality of my life to Dr. Perrin.
