Additional Information

My practice concentrates in consulting to attorneys handling medical negligence cases, professional disability disputes, peer review and medical board licensing matters involving anesthesia issues. As an experienced Board Certified anesthesiologist, present throughout countless operations in a wide variety of settings, I am able to complete a thorough and objective expert medical analysis, interpreting complicated medical conditions, procedures and treatments. I will reveal and explain all the anesthesia issues and assess the clinical decisions made regarding the patient's management. I teach and supervise Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA's), medical students, CRNA students and resident physicians in pre, intra and post-operative anesthesia care. I have cross-disciplinary knowledge being a former practicing attorney for both plaintiff and defense. I am an objective resource in case evaluation, a skillful communicator, an easy-to-work-with consultant and a relevant contributor to bringing about a clear understanding of the case, for either plaintiff or defense.
