I'm a board certified cardiologist with 44 years of practice experience involving non-invasive, invasive, and interventional cardiology. My initial position was as an academic cardiologist at a medical school as Director of the cath lab and acting Chief of Cardiology at a teaching hospital, with patient care, teaching and publishing responsibilities. Following 3 years in this position I was in fee for service practice for 7 years, then in practice combining fee for service and managed care patients for 22 years.

Following Medical Residency I served as a physician in the US Army Medical Corps as a Major, serving in Vietnam from Aug '71-Aug '72, where I was awarded the Bronze Star, and at Fort MacArthur, California, from Aug '72-'73. In September '05 I served as an invited lecturer and consultant at one of the two largest teaching hospitals in Japan.

Over the last 38 years, I have served as an expert witness in 190 -200 medicolegal cases, working with both the plaintiff and defense sides, and I have received uniformly excellent feedback from all of the attorneys with whom I have worked.

Currently, I am a Clinical Associate Professor of Cardiology engaged in part time clinical practise and teaching of Post-Doctoral fellows in cardiology at the University of California Irvine/VA Hospital Long Beach, California.
