Additional Information

Since 2011, I am American board certified in Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases, and Critical Care Medicine. Since 2014, I’ve worked as an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine and have authored dozens of manuscripts and given hundreds of lectures in the fields of IM, ID, and critical care. I am a speaker at international congresses and advisory boards. I’m extremely well qualified in topics including sepsis, COVID-19, wound and postoperative/surgical infections, antibiotics, endocarditis, bacteremia, MRSA, urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted infections, necrotizing fasciitis, osteomyelitis, prosthetic joint infections, spine infections, device-related infections, nursing home infections, ECMO, mechanical ventilation, advanced airway, life support, vasopressors, seizures, and trauma. As an expert medical witness, I’ve reviewed hundreds of medical malpractice cases and remain comfortable, energetic, devoted, efficient, relaxed, and thorough in every case I evaluate. I review plaintiff or defendant cases equally for breaches in standard of care, negligence and/or deviations from guidelines and hospital protocols. I was the expert witness for the largest medical malpractice settlement in the state of Colorado. I am very familiar with procedures including but not limited to intubation, central venous/arterial catheters, bronchoscopy, chest tubes, ECMO, dialysis, and balloon pumps.
