I have prepared reports for both Defense and Plaintiff attorneys; I have worked with insurers. I attempt to provide "disinterested" reviews by articulating the only school-of-thought that befits the database; my perennial focus has been on tobacco abuse. I completed Oncology/Hematology Fellowships at Sloan-Kettering and Hahnemann; I have been in continuous solo-practice since 1981. I was President of a Medical Staff and, thus, am familiar with the JCAHO system; I was deeply involved in Organized Medicine for 20 years and, thus, am familiar with policies generated by professional entities. I have scrutinized the law and how it influences medical and administrative procedures; the interface between law and medicine continues to fascinate.
