Pain Management - Medicine, Addiction Medicine - toxicology, impairment, prescription, drugs, opioids, cannabis/marijuana, alcohol, criminal, DUI/DWI, felony, civil, personal injury, dram shop, overdose
I am a physician (M.D.) who is Board Certified in Anesthesiology, Pain Medicine, and Addiction Medicine. As a consultant in forensic/legal cases, my main area of focus involves the clinical toxicology of prescription medications, recreational drugs and substances of abuse, marijuana/cannabis, and alcohol. My training and education include the interpretation of clinical and forensic toxicology test results in multiple matrices, including blood, urine, serum, hair, and nails. In addition, my training and education include safe opioid prescribing procedures, interpretation of prescribing records, assessment of patient responses to prescribed opioids, and overdose prevention education and practices. Unlike non-physicians who review toxicology test results in forensic cases, as a clinician I am able to read, interpret, and testify on the contents of medical records. I understand that the presence of a positive test result does not necessarily constitute the presence of impairment or obs...

Forensic Psychiatry, Internal Medicine - Licensed in VA, WV, NC, 3 board certifications, Personal Injury, Traffic Accidents, Professional Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Harassment, Hostile Work Environment, Brain Injury, Testamentary Capacity, Undue Influence, Criminal Responsibility, Competency, PTSD, Workers' Compensation , Disability
I have unique credentials that allow for enhanced analysis of difficult cases. I graduated from the University of Virginia (UVA) for both college and medical school. At UVA, I was selected for dual residency training in internal medicine and psychiatry. I completed a fellowship in forensic psychiatry at the UVA Institute for Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy studying under Dr. Park Dietz, who at that time was a regular consultant to the FBI. It is my belief that forensic psychiatrists serve courts of law in administrative, civil, and criminal matters. My three board certifications assist me in these tasks and allow for enhanced analysis of difficult cases often involving psychiatric and medical conditions. My unique training allows me to untangle symptoms of mis-attribution. Complex cases often have a great many medical records spanning years of treatment that need to be studied and carefully applied to the questions before the court. I believe it is important to evaluate cases fo...
