BIO / Resume / CV:
EW #2387 At the time, M.D., J.D. left his oncology practice in 1990, his wife and he had developed the largest private oncology practice in the U.S. They managed over a 100 staff and 10 physicians treating an average of nearly 250 patients a day. Since 1994, he has functioned as a volunteer physician at the Health Care Clinic for the Homeless working as a generalist. Since he has not been actively engaged in oncology since 1990, his value as an expert testifying witness is impaired; however, his ability to review records remains excellent. Radiation oncology is a very specialized area of medicine combining medical and physics knowledge rendering the nuances of treatment complex and not easily understood by the average reviewer or attorney. His experience as a teacher in medical schools is useful in educating the plaintiff’s attorney and staff. His background in gynecology, diagnostic radiology and law are added advantages in chart review. Being an attorney allows him to actively advise during depositions and at trial permitting the plaintiff’s attorney to more effectively examine opposing witnesses. Fees for the later services are reduced to minimize expenses.
