Expert 346238 - CA(S)


Expertise Description

I have 30 years experience as an ophthalmologist in a private practice. I have experience in medical and surgical treatment of cataracts; glaucoma; vision care; cornea; anterior segment of the eye; macular degeneration; eyelid plastic and reconstructive surgery; treatment of periocular cancers, and eye glasses. I have more than 20 years expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.

Areas of Expertise


Expert Witness

My expert witness experience includes standard of care in eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, eye infections and trauma, and oculoplastics.


Relevant Experiences

I have been performing cataract surgery for over 35 years. I have performed many thousands during that time. I have encountered and managed most every complication at one time or another. Although, fortunately rare, complications do occur, even in the best of hands, sometimes resulting in poor visual outcomes. The key to minimizing vision loss is proper management intra-operatively and post-operatively. I believe I can analyze the facts in the case and render an informed expert opinion.
