+ PRIMARY CARE OFFICE EXPERIENCE
I am a primary-care physician with 36 years of experience in an office and group practice in the Greater Cincinnati area. I am board-certified in internal medicine since 1981. My practice has consisted of adults, ages 16-102. I have extensive experience treating all sorts of primary-care issues including all types of cancer screening, chest pain, acute MI, headache, pre-stroke and stroke syndromes, and a wide variety of other common primary-care office issues.
+ HOSPITAL EXPERIENCE
I did my internal medicine training at Christ Hospital, Cincinnati, Ohio, from 1978-1981. Christ Hospital has frequently been named as one of America's 100 Best Hospitals. While a resident at Christ Hospital, I had extensive in-hospital training, including being the resident-in-charge of the Intensive Care Unit for 4 months during my third year of residency. After completing my residency, I had 20 years of additional experience in treating my own hospitalized patients and in supervising the medical residents in the Christ Hospital residency program, from 1981 to 2001. At that point my group went to the use of hospitalists and I have not done in-hospital care since 2001. I do, however, have an excellent understanding of in-hospital medical care.
+ NURSING FACILITY EXPERIENCE
I have attended patients regularly in nursing facilities, skilled, rehab and others, for 36 years. I have not been a facility director but I am familiar with the medical workings of such facilities.
+ TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I was an attending physician and I supervised and taught internal medicine residents at Christ Hospital from 1981 - 2001. I have been a volunteer preceptor for the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine for more than 10 years. I currently teach first-year and second-year medical students in a clinical skills course that takes place in my office.
+ PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I've done all of my education and medical training and practice in the Greater Cincinnati area. I currently live in the Northern Kentucky area of Greater Cincinnati. I am married and have three adult children and three grandchildren. I am currently a volunteer and co-medical director in a non-profit organization, Tattoo Removal Ink, which removes at no charge unwanted tattoos from formerly-incarcerated men and women, and from women who were victims of human-trafficking. I am also a devoted dog- and cat-rescuer and have a nice collection of four-leggers who live with us in the Northern Kentucky country.
+ RETIREMENT FROM CLINICAL PRACTICE
I will be retiring from my active clinical practice of primary-care internal medicine on May 1, 2016. My retirement is voluntary and I have no health issues forcing retirement. I plan to continue to do medicolegal consulting as the opportunity arises. I will be available to do directional review, proximate-cause review and standard-of-care review as permitted by various jurisdictions.
