I am Board certified in Diagnostic Radiology with fellowship training in Cardiothoracic imaging. I am currently the Section Chief of Cardiothoracic radiology and Clinical Associate Professor of Radiology and Internal Medicine at SUNY Downstate in NYC where I have been an attending for over 10 years. In this capacity I teach Medical students, Radiology and Medicine residents, Pulmonary/critical care and Cardiology fellows. Furthermore, I am a Federal Government Certified B-Reader for asbestosis, silicosis and other occupational dust and fiber exposures.
In addition, I am a recognized and published author on error in radiology and its' resultant medicolegal ramifications having written about blind spots, missed findings, communication failures, fatigue, and system related problems.
I am experienced as an expert witness and medicolegal consultant (both defense and plaintiff) and am prompt, reliable, and efficient, having consulted in dozens of cases.
