I have 25 years of experience, and specialize in the field of infectious diseases with specific knowledge in the areas of HIV/AIDS, meningococcal infections and necrotizing fasciitis. I have published on such topics as treatment of HIV/AIDS and its complications, sexually transmitted diseases and meningococcal infections. I have testified 12 times on topics such as necrotizing fasciitis, meningococcemia and failure to diagnose and treat infections. The leitmotiv of my career in academic medicine and private practice has been teaching. I have won several teaching awards and use this expertise to communicate complex medical issues in plain language.
