Additional Information

32 years in Nashville Tennessee in the private practice of adult neurology, both inpatient and outpatient. Previous director Department of Neurosciences, and director of neurology section primary care residency program at St. Thomas Midtown Hospital. Now devoting my time completely to outpatient neurology with a large multispecialty group of over 140 physicians. I have experience rendering opinions and testimony as both treating physician, and expert witness. It is just in 2019 however that I have carved out time in my workweek to devote to medicolegal cases. My strength is that my scope is broad as a general neurologist. Injuries don’t happen in a vacuum. Each patient has a background that might include chronic medical problems, psychosocial stresses, prior injuries, sleep disorders, substance use, medications. I spend each day sorting through these issues, and parsing out their relative roles in the patient’s complaints. My goal in each medicolegal case is to impartially define the neurologic issues in the setting of these pre-existing or concurrent factors.
