Additional Information

I am a board-certified neurosurgeon in clinical practice in Baltimore, Maryland. For the past 23+ 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. Medicine is constantly evolving, and I enjoy keeping up with new developments by reading the relevant medical literature, regularly attending professional conferences, and always learning about time-honored and new medical insights and forms of treatment. Within the field of neurosurgery, I can provide my clients with additional insights from the standpoint of causation of injury, the standard of care, pre-existing conditions, the necessity and appropriateness of medical care, the reasonableness of charges for care rendered, the endpoint of treatment (i.e. MMI), impairment rating, as well as the need for, and estimated cost of, future medical care.
