Obstetrics & Gynecology

I have practiced obstetrics and gynecology for the past 49 years.The first 19 years included the teaching faculty at UCLA and Cedars Sinai in LA. I have worked in both city and rural facilities.

In the last ten years I have specialized in hospital based obstetrics and gynecology. This includes care of women with high risk pregnancies requiring hospital care, labor and delivery of both low and high risk women, obstetrical emergencies, postpartum care, emergency department consultations and emergency gynecologic surgery, as well as in-hospital obstetrics and gynecology consultations.

I have been an expert witness for both plaintiff and defense in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology for over 40 years, including records review, peer review, expert witness reports, depositions, testimony at arbitration and in court.  Areas of expertise include birth injuries, fetal monitoring, labor management, shoulder dystocia, obstetrical complications, vacuum and forceps deliveries, VBAC deliveries, gynecological surgical injuries, pregnancy loss.

I have an interest in improving the quality of medical care.
