Additional Information

I am a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon in private practice with 31 years of civilian and 8 years of military (4 Residency and 4 Staff) experience in Orthopedic Surgery. I have developed an interest in IME and Legal Expert examinations due to my interest in teaching, which is what I view the role of an expert. I have attended the SEAK conference on expert testimony, the AMA course on IMEs and currently spend about 80% of my practice time "Forensic Orthopedics," i.e. IMEs and legal expert testimony. I am licensed in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Arizona, and Alaska. I am an experienced expert witness.
