My Chiropractic career began as a graduate of SCU in 1980. For 3 years I worked as an associate in a multi-disciplinary practice with an emphasis on defense Worker’s Compensation in Corona, CA. and for a brief time in Seal Beach, CA. My work continued in multi-disciplinary care in my own private practice in Tustin, CA Meier Chiropractic Office for the next 12 years. My treatment consisted of defense Workers Compensation, Personal Injury, Health Insurance and cash practice. It is during this time I became an Industrial Disability Evaluator and Disability Rater. The last two years of private practice were with an integrated medical facility Friendly Hills Medical Center. I worked from La Habra, Tustin and Irvine, CA as a Chiropractic doctor in multiple integrative health facilities. In 1993 I became a peer reviewer for multiple review companies, from Intraorp, Safeco and Review Co. I have been an expert witness in several trial Personal Injury cases. I began working as a Supervising Clinician at SCU in Whittier beginning in 2001. I worked for 9 years at SCU Whittier taking over Dr. Scaringe’s practice as he began his career in Administrative Service at SCU.
