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.
As a associate professor of surgery I have authored 3 book chapters three patents and 106 research papers published in peer reviewed medical journals. Because of my medical and research background, I believe I am in the best position to study and present your disability case in the best light.
If you are at the initial claim phase you are not allowed to have an attorney representing you. I can however provide you with an independent medical opinion. If you were denied a claim I can represent you before the VA.
I am a combat veteran suffering from obstructive sleep apnea
I served in the Israeli armored Seventh Brigade as a captain of the Medical Corps during the Yom Kippur War.
On October 6, 1973, the Syrian 7th Infantry Division attacked the Israeli 7th Armored Brigade, comprised of only two tank battalions, in the Golan Heights. The Syrians launched simultaneous attacks from the north and from the south. They attacked the two Israeli brigades and eleven supporting artillery batteries with five divisions (the 7th, 9th and 5th, with the 1st and 3rd in reserve) and 188 batteries.
