I am a board certified Internal Medicine physician who currently works as a Hospitalist in Atlanta, GA. A Hospitalist is a physician who works in the inpatient setting of a hospital. Therefore, when sick patients visit the ER and its determined that they need to stay hospitalized, I get the call to take care of them (in the medical floors or ICU). Due to my full time schedule being "5 ON, 5 OFF" (five days of inpatient work followed by five days OFF of work), this allows me time to take on medical expert cases. Previous to my time in Atlanta, I have worked full time in New York City and New Jersey. In addition, I have taken on Locums assignments in several other states and cities. In previous summers, I have participated in medical missionary trips over seas - such as Jamaica and Nigeria. When I'm home from saving the world (LOL), I spend time with my wonderful family. I have two daughters (ages 7 & 3) and a son (15 months). However, my greatest asset is my dear wife! Not only is ...

I have been in medical practice as internal medicine from 1985 to a Retirement with distinction which is a semi retirement in July 1, 2022. I have practiced internal medicine during the time when most physicians did both inpatient and outpatient care and so I had gone to my office every day and also to the hospital every day from 1985 to approximately 2015. Like most physicians around that time I continued in outpatient only using EMR systems. Across the years I have done less than one percent of my work in non-clinical areas. I have reviewed and testified for both defense and plaintiff in about equal number. I can examine quite extensive charts and have experience with EMR stretching back to 2010. Good understanding of the many pitfalls and strength of the EMR system.

I have unique credentials that allow for enhanced analysis of difficult cases. I graduated from the University of Virginia (UVA) for both college and medical school. At UVA, I was selected for dual residency training in internal medicine and psychiatry. I completed a fellowship in forensic psychiatry at the UVA Institute for Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy studying under Dr. Park Dietz, who at that time was a regular consultant to the FBI. It is my belief that forensic psychiatrists serve courts of law in administrative, civil, and criminal matters. My three board certifications assist me in these tasks and allow for enhanced analysis of difficult cases often involving psychiatric and medical conditions. My unique training allows me to untangle symptoms of mis-attribution. Complex cases often have a great many medical records spanning years of treatment that need to be studied and carefully applied to the questions before the court.
