I have been practicing clinical emergency medicine for more than twenty years. I attended medical school at the Medical College of Ohio and did my post graduate training at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. The bulk of my career was spent at Riverside and St. Ann's Hospital, also in Columbus. I was one of four founders of the emergency medicine group which still staffs St. Ann's Hospital today. After seven years at St. Ann's, I returned to Riverside Hospital to teach. I served on many medical staff committees. I was the Emergency Department Education Coordinator and the only Riverside emergency physician sent for executive training by Dr. Nick Baird who would go on to become the Director of the Ohio Department of Health.
I was a wistleblower, fired for advocating equal cardiac care for women and for opposing health care fraud. In an effort to rebuild my career after being fired as a whistleblower, I took several directorships at smaller emergency departments. I also practiced for two summers at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and more recently (2013-2014) at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton Ohio.
I have teaching experience at the University of Toledo, Riverside Methodist Hospital, Ohio State University, and Ohio ACEP. I am the recipient of national awards: the American Academy of Emergency Medicine's James Keaney (life-time achievement) Award and the Press Ganey Summit (patient satisfaction) Award (2x). My international work building emergency departments and residencies was recognized by the World Health Organization. I was most recently to Macedonia teaching emergency medicine in the Spring of 2016. I am currently faculty at the Emergency Medicine Residency at the University of Toledo where I have been core faculty and I am also a member of the ethics committee.
