Additional Information

I am actively practicing Wound Care and Infectious Diseases, and have over a decade of experience in both areas. I have worked in a variety of practice settings, and am knowledgeable about corresponding standards of care. I provide expertise and have testified in both Wound Care and Infectious Disease related cases. I teach medical students and perform peer reviews for one of leading national wound care journals. Besides being Board Certified in Infectious Diseases and CMET-Certified in Wound Care, I am also Board Certified in Internal Medicine. Additionally, I have certifications in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Lymphedema Therapy. I ranked in the top 10% of doctors in training nationally, and have stayed current with general medical topics throughout my career as a subspecialist. While being detail oriented, I am able to see the big picture of a case. I am apt at analyzing complex medical facts, synthesizing and presenting them in a digestible form to a lay audience. I provide a prompt and thorough expert opinion, and my well-researched reports reflect the standards of care of a given time. Languages spoken: English, Spanish, German, Russian, Ukrainian.
