    I am a dual board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in both Internal Medicine and Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism. I hold an active license in the State of California and have a full-time private practice. I have extensive experience in legal Consulting, depositions, trial testimony (including 402 expert hearings), jury education and strategy.

    I am also an expert reviewer for the State of California Medical Board. I have worked on numerous cases in diabetes (including cases related to exacerbation of pre-existing diabetes from injury, improper medication administration, hypoglycemia, diabetic neuropathy, diabetic retinopathy, defending unlawful job termination/discrimination claims related to diabetes, defense of diabetes-related criminal cases and others). Other areas of prior expert work in the field of Endocrinology include thyroid cancer, hypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, adrenal disease, product labeling and deceptive medical claims.

    I have worked with attorneys across the U.S for a variety of clients including employees, small and large business owners, landlords, physicians and hotels. In addition, I have worked for the Attorney General, California Public Defender and the California State Medical Board.

    I received my medical degree from the University of Southern California and post-doctoral training at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. I completed an NIH fellowship in Clinical Research and received a certificate in Clinical Investigation from the UCLA General Clinical Research Center.

    In addition to full-time practice, I am the past Clinical Chief of the Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, a former instructor at the UCLA School of Medicine, and a founding member of the Cedars-Sinai Thyroid Cancer Center.

    I have lectured at national symposia and authored numerous publications in the field of Endocrinology including Nature, Endocrine Practice, JAMA, Endocrine Pathology and numerous others.
