I'm a board certified cardiologist with 39 years of practice experience involving non-invasive, invasive and interventional cardiology. My initial position was as an academic cardiologist at a medical school, as Director of the cath lab and Acting Chief of Cardiology at a teaching hospital, with patient care, teaching and publishing responsibilities. Following 3 years in that position I was in fee-for- service practice for 7 years, then in practice combining fee for service and managed care patients for 22 years.
Following Medical Residency, I served as a physician in the US Army Medical Corps as a Major in Vietnam from August '71-August '72, where I was awarded the Bronze Star, and at Fort MacArthur, Ca, from August '72-July '73.
Over the last 37 years I have served as an expert witness in 170-175 malpractice cases, working with both plaintiff and defense sides, and I have received uniformly excellent feedback from all of the attorneys with whom I've worked.
