Herbert Jennings, MD, QME, MRO

Chief Medical Officer,
Board Certified Occupational Medicine

Dr. Jennings graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine and spent 10 years in Emergency Medicine before discovering Occupational Medicine and his professional home. 

I enjoy treating workers because I respect their efforts daily to benefit themselves, their families and society.  Some of my dedication to this field stems from remembering how long and hard my parents worked to afford me educational opportunities

After additional post graduate studies at the then Southern Occupational Health Center at UCI and Loma Linda University School of Public Health, he became board certified by The American Board of Preventive Medicine in Occupational Medicine. 

Dr. Jennings has practiced in clinic settings and directed a hospital based occupational medicine program at St. Jude in Fullerton for almost 20 years before joining Dr. Cheshire for the expansion of Akeso in 2005. As an integral part of his practice, he has treated employees from and consulted on health and safety issues with private employers, large and small, public agencies and health care facilities. 

He is certified as a Qualified Medical Evaluator in California and as Akeso's Medical Review Officer, has overseen their pre-employment and Department of Transportation drug and alcohol testing programs.
