I bring more than 20 years experience in the medical profession to the table. As a Board Certified OB/GYN with well over 2,000 deliveries, I am extremely knowledgeable in all areas of obstetrics. My specialty training was at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC), which included a four-month rotation of high risk obstetrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Following successful completion of my residency, I served as a faculty instructor at GBMC, as well as maintaining a private practice. In 1996, I left this practice to become the Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Baltimore for the Mid-AAJntic Permanente Medical Group (the physician group of Kaiser Permanente). In addition to serving as OB/GYN Chief, in 2002, I also took on the role of Area Medical Director.
In addition to my extensive obstetrical experience, I also had a particularized interest in gynecologic surgery. My specialty was in the area of minimally invasive procedures. I was the first person at GBMC to perform a laparoscopic supra cervical hysterectomy, as was I the first to perform incontinence surgery utilizing a tension free vaginal tape. Both procedures allowed the patient to go home the day of surgery with only a one to two week recovery. I have lectured to physicians nationwide about these innovative techniques.
Throughout my medical career, I have served on a number of committees, including; the Obstetrical Advisory Committee at GBMC, the Gynecology Advisory Committee at GBMC, the Obstetrical Quality Review Committee at Kaiser, to mention a few. He is a fellow of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
I have extensive medical-legal experience, and have served as an expert witness many times in both deposition and trial. I have done this both from a plaintiff and defense perspective.
I am a member of the Maryland Bar, and have qualified for membership into both the District of Columbia, and Minnesota Bars. I am also a member of the American Association for Justice, the Maryland Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Bar Association. I was elected Member of the Year in Madison Who's Who Registry of Executives and Professionals for 2007-2008 edition, and was also selected to its Round Table, honoring me as one of the top 100 members worldwide.
