Wilton, CT (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Mednick Associates added three post-clinical career physicians to its new Medical Advisory Board. The Medical Advisory Board, consisting of the following doctors, works together to provide attorneys a concise research-based opinion on the merit of their medically related cases. The board combines the knowledge and experience of these top-tier physicians:
Dr. Gerald Berg, MD
A principle at Medical Legal Consultants, LLC, he is triple boarded in radiology and nuclear and internal medicine. In addition to his duties as a clinical professor and leader within various medical organizations, Dr. Berg is devoted to medical-legal work and assisting litigators with case analysis. His past clinical career saw him as a physician staff member of the Yale-New Haven Hospital as well as Founder and Chairman of his private radiology practice at Waterbury Hospital Health Center. A graduate of the University of Rochester School of Medicine, Dr. Berg’s diverse clinical career and expertise makes him well-versed to review a multitude of cases in various disciplines.
Dr. Robert Lehman, MD
A principle in the company Medical Legal Consultants, LLC, he is dual board certified in radiology and nuclear medicine, as well as a graduate of the NYU Langone School of Medicine. Prior to his retirement from full-time clinical practice in 2012, Dr. Lehman founded his own practice in 1976. For 15 years, Dr. Lehman was the Chairman of the radiology department at St. Mary’s Hospital in Connecticut while also participating as a hospital board member and radiation safety officer. In addition to numerous hospital committee appointments, Dr. Lehman’s wide range of clinical acumen allows him to provide expertise on both adult and pediatric cases and radiological film and image interpretation.
Dr. Steven Wilkins, MD/JD
After a distinguished career as a general, critical care and trauma surgeon at various hospitals in the NYC area, Dr. Wilkins sought to marry his medical expertise with the legal profession. He did so in 2004, and upon his graduation from Hofstra University School of Law, transitioned his professional career to providing top tier research-based medical guidance to medical malpractice litigators. His unique combination of medical and legal knowledge is a valuable combination for assessing the viability and merit of medical malpractice claims. Due to his prior medical career, Dr. Wilkins is qualified to review adult and pediatric cases, especially those involving critical care settings.
Mednick still offers free case screenings with initial expert opinions for all clients. However, certain cases require a more in-depth analysis to determine their merit. Mednick’s Medical Advisory Board is available to assist with medically related cases that are complex, have gray areas, or can swing either way. The analysis provided by the Medical Advisory Board is compiled in the form of a written confidential work memo. Medical Advisory Board services are offered at a flat rate of $795 per case with no additional fees or hidden costs.
