I have practiced medicine for nearly two decades, and have been a Board Certified Pulmonary and Critical Care provider since 2011. I have been involved with Medical Legal Review for over a decade. I have worked in multiple health systems across the country, and understand the impact of subtle regional differences in practice. I have also held numerous leadership positions at the local and system levels. In addition to participation on many Medical Executive Committees, I have served as the Medical Director of Critical Care Medicine at two facilities (Piedmont Atlanta and Piedmont Fayette), served as Chairman of Internal Medicine (Piedmont Atlanta) and I served as the Chairman of the Sepsis Taskforce for Piedmont Healthcare. I have vast experience with Key Performance Indicators/Quality Metrics related to Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. I have a deep understanding of Electronic Medical Records, and how the providers interface with them.
