Dr. E. Richard Dorsey, MD

Dr. Richard Dorsey is AME ,IME and QME certified, and provides psychiatric services for WOSA patients. He is also Board-Certified in Psychiatry, and is a Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association (DLFAPA). Dr. Richard Dorsey welcomes denied or undecided workers' compensation cases on a lien basis, with prompt appointments.  He also offers phone appointments for follow-up cases with transportation problems or periods of COVID restrictions.

In addition to the above, Dr. Dorsey accepts non-network California workers' compensation patients on a lien basis, since there are few, if any other workers' compensation treating psychiatrists in Orange and Riverside Counties, and only a limited number in Los Angeles and San Diego counties. In addition, he welcomes Federal workers' compensation cases, for whom there are very few other psychiatrists in all of Southern California.
