Additional Information

I am a board-certified neurosurgeon in clinical practice in Baltimore, Maryland. For the past 25+ years, in addition to my clinical practice, I have assisted clients in the fields of insurance, law, and government with analyzing and understanding complex clinical cases. Based on the facts of a case, I will provide clients additional insights regarding pre-existing medical conditions, the necessity and appropriateness of medical care, causation, the reasonableness of prior healthcare charges, the need for, and estimated cost of, future medical care, the expected endpoint of treatment (i.e. MMI), the rating of impairment based on national Guides, as well as the standard of care. Please refer to my two websites for additional details regarding my neurosurgical practice: (medicolegal site) (clinical site)
