PROFESSIONAL SUMMARY

For over 10 years, I have routinely conducted forensic expert witness assessment and rendered my opinion by report and testimony.  In addition to uncounted forensic evaluations, I have qualified as an expert witness in over 40 cases, and testified in most.  Concurrently, I have an active clinical practice in an acute care mental health hospital at the Rush Oak Park Hospital.  Patients exhibiting mental illness indicating hospitalization are first assessed by me; I diagnose for admission and treat patients during their hospitalization. Age, disability, and family dynamics are routine factors which require my expertise. In addition, I assist in establishing protocol for admitting medically hospitalized patients for mental health evaluations to be used by doctors who are not psychiatrists.  I also provide patient care in a community mental health center. My medico-legal training is an asset in circumstances where a decision may have a legal consequence, including in a clinical setting such as hospitalization where competency is often a concern.
