Worker’s Compensation Expertise

At Palo Brea Pain & Rehabilitation Centers, we specialize in working with Worker’s Compensation cases.

We understand both from the medical side and the administrative side, how to move a case forward to get the patient back to functionality as quickly as possible. Our staff works cohesively with attorneys, adjusters, and nurse case managers. Our doctors make themselves available to talk with the Worker’s Compensation professional to answer questions about the case.

Why are we excellent at what we do?
