Additional Information

I am a maternal fetal medicine (MFM) specialist at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). In addition to my work as an expert witness, I review cases of adverse events or near misses from regional medical centers for quality improvement. My clinical work includes managing high risk patients on labor and delivery and on the inpatient antepartum unit. I also provide prenatal care and consultation for patients with high risk pregnancies. I manage patients with a wide array of maternal conditions such as hypertension, hypertensive diseases of pregnancy, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. I manage fetal conditions including multiple gestations, prenatal diagnosis, fetal anomalies, and fetal therapy. As an expert witness, I have reviewed cases ranging from management of abnormal fetal heart rate monitoring to missed fetal anomalies on prenatal ultrasound.
