I am a Certified Life Care Planner (CLCP, LCP-C). I have had a successful 25 year history of practicing as a podiatric physician and surgeon. I am now dedicating my skills to Life Care Planning. I am uniquely skilled as an expert in Life Care Planning especially involving the lower extremities (amputation, paralysis, burns, post traumatic arthritis, etc.) but I can perform an excellent Life Care Plan for all catastrophic and non-catastrophic injuries. I strive to provide the highest quality of damages valuation services in this industry. In addition, I am exclusively able to provide a medical cost projection (or "limited" life care plan) for foot and ankle injuries that often lead to progressive and future degenerative arthritis and disability. For example: a heel, foot or ankle fracture following a fall or slip. I am an experienced and comfortable Expert Witness in personal injury and medical malpractice cases.
