Additional Information

I am a board-certified Internal Medicine Physician, Hospitalist, and Nursing Home Physician, boasting a robust background in peer review and 12 years of clinical experience. I graduated from Rush University Medical School ranking in the top 50% of my class, with board scores that placed me in the top national quartile. Currently, I serve as an Internal Medicine clinical instructor at Scripps and have been educating residents and medical students for the past 9 years. Additionally, I am a staff physician with San Diego SNF Hospitalists, a group dedicated to serving several skilled nursing facilities since 2016. I have extensive experience in peer review having held various positions including Assistant Medical Director, Morbidity and Mortality Chair, Member of the Professional Performance Review Committee, IM Peer Review Committee, Utilization Review Committee, and the Medicine Supervisory Committee. Throughout my career, I have lent my expertise to over 100 malpractice and licensure cases, with a distribution of 60% plaintiff and 40% defense. It is worth noting that a great portion of these cases pertained to nursing homes, specifically addressing decubitus ulcers, underscoring my familiarity with this particular area. Should your firm require assistance with internal medicine, nursing home, or hospitalist case reviews, I would be honored to collaborate with you. My CV and fee schedule are readily available, and I can provide attorney references as well as redacted medical reports upon request. Texts/Calls/Emails all returned within 1 hour.
