I also have extensive expertise in drug litigation and patent disputes.
In cases where drug prescribing, dosing, adverse effects and drug interactions are in question, I provide standard-of-care expert witness testimony.
I am Board certified in Clinical Pharmacology and in Internal Medicine.
I have been Chairman and Executive Director of the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology, President of the American Society of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and have been on multiple national committees.
I teach and practice Clinical Pharmacology and Internal Medicine in an academic and clinical setting.
