I have been doing expert witness work for approximately 11 years. To date, I have participated in over 40 cases and have been deposed twice in the last four years. I enjoy participating as an expert witness for numerous reasons but two reasons stand out to me. The first is that I enjoy teaching. I teach also as a member of a speaker bureau in another role where I educate other physicians about diabetes and diabetes treatment options. As an expert witness, I teach by carefully and clearly explaining to my audience, the nuances of certain disease states and standards of care in my field. The second reason I enjoy expert witness work is that I feel it makes me a better physician. Understanding the intricacies that lead to either positive or negatives outcomes in patient care, allows me to apply what I've learned to my own practice and strive for continual improvement. More about me: I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. I completed my undergraduate studies at Tufts University ...
