Additional Information

I offer plaintiff and defense expert witness services in the field of correctional medicine. As of December 2021, I have reviewed approximately 80 files with approximately 20 requiring deposition and 1 proceeding to a trial appearance. I adhere to the Guideline for Physicians Serving as Expert Witness published by the American College of Correctional Physicians of which I am a member. Broadly speaking, my testimony commonly involves standard of care in a correctional environment. Specific concerns that frequently arise include: -Wrong/missed diagnosis -Wrong/insufficient or no treatment -Delay of care -Insufficient access including but not limited to failing to refer to specialist providers and failure to use the local emergency department I have experience both as a primary care physician in a correctional environment and also as a physician administrator.
