Additional Information

I am an actively practicing full-time Emergency Medicine Physician since completing my residency in 2012. I have worked in a number of high acuity community emergency departments since getting board certified, and currently work primarily at Delray Medical Center, a top Florida hospital (recipient of the Healthgrades America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award, 2007-2020). I have extensive experience working at a hospital that serves multiple roles in my community including functioning as a Level I Trauma Center, Comprehensive Stroke Center, Nationally Ranked Heart Center, Psychiatric-Hold Receiving Facility. In addition to the above clinical work, I am also an affiliate assistant professor for the FAU Emergency Medicine Residency Program. I have received teaching awards for my involvement in the program, and am involved in the clinical competency committee, helping to determine if residents have developed the skills and knowledge to advance in their training. Lastly, I am very interested in medical-legal work and keep a schedule that allows me the time to thoroughly analyze cases and confer with attorneys. I provide regular case reviews for Teamhealth litigation support on a monthly basis. I also thoroughly enjoy working as an expert witness, providing clarity in complex medical situations from my perspective as an emergency physician. I work with both plaintiff and defense attorneys. I am available every day from 3pm-7pm EST to discuss any cases.
