I am an attorney specializing in disability law and also a board certified surgeon (transplant surgery) still licensed to practice medicine. I am also most proud of being a combat veteran. I am passionate about defending veterans’ rights and firmly believe that my medical career gives me a great advantage in understanding and challenging faulty medical rating decisions.
In addition to being a lawyer I am a surgeon with almost thirty years of medical experience. I served as Clinical Associate Professor in Surgery and Attending Surgeon in Transplantation at SUNY at Stony Brook, , New York Assistant Editor, Transplantation Proceedings and President of the New York Transplantation Society.
