Incorporating medical expert witnessing into my active medical career because it combines some of my strengths in clinical medicine and academics. Passionate in my medical career, running the breadth of pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine and doing it at a high level. Combining this passion with my attention to detail makes me, not only, a good clinician but serves as an advantage as I review medical charts, research and complete medical writings for either the plaintiff or defense to render unbiased medical opinions based on available facts which serve to make me well prepared for deposition and trial, when necessary.
