Expertise DescriptionI have more than 30 years in the field of Obstetrics & Gynecology with expertise in gynecological surgery, pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis, urinary incontinence, menstrual irregularities, polycystic ovarian syndrome, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginitis, ovarian cysts, abnormal Pap smears, vaginal mesh complications, sexual problems, reproductive organs, menopausal medicine, hormone therapy, and breast diseases. I have prior expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
Areas of Expertise
My professional experience includes being an Assistant Clinical Professor of OB/GYN, as well as an Expert Reviewer, Guest Lecturer, and Medical Director for a Multi-specialty Group.
I do have expertise in Environmental medicine, and do some lecturing on the topic and have taken courses on the subject.
I practiced obstetrics for over 25 years, and though I no longer do deliveries, I do see pregnant women, particularly during the first trimester and do pregnancy planning.
I have a great deal of experience with IUD legal issues and feel I can be of assistance on this matter.
I have delivered thousands of babies throughout my career. Although I stopped doing deliveries 10 years ago, the standard of care has not changed since then concerning doctors being available to care for the patient, but I recognize that this can be an issue.
During my long career as a GYN surgeon, I performed many hundreds of hysterectomies and taught doing them at USC County Hospital to residents training to become surgeons.
