Additional Information

I am a clinical cardiologist with over 40 years of experience, widely published author and a clinical investigator with national and international reputation. Currently I am a professor of cardiology at the University of southern California. My clinical activities include attending the coronary care unit, the cardiology consult service and the out- patient cardiology clinic at the Los Angeles General medical center, managing a wide spectrum of complex cardiac patients. In addition for over 4 decades I have run a busy program of cardio obstetrics taking care of all pregnant women with cardiovascular conditions at the hospital and at the cardio obstetrics clinic. For almost 35 years I practiced invasive and interventional cardiology and performed thousands of invasive procedures. I have a national and international reputation and have given hundreds of lectures and directed educational programs in the US and around the globe. I was awarded the prestigious American College of Cardiology 2021 award for leadership in women's cardiovascular disease. Although legal consulting is only a small part of my professional activity, over the last 3 decades I have had a considerable experience serving as an expert witness, working as a consultant in both plaintiff and defense cases and having a substantial experience giving deposition testimonies and appearing in court.
