“There is a unique non-clinical consulting opportunity any physician can learn to do full-time, as part of your existing practice, or in lieu of retiring. I’m Dr. Armin Feldman, and I’m a full-time medical-legal consultant in legal cases. A little over 13 years ago, I started and now, through the years, have been refining a new subspecialty of forensic medicine. I’ve trained over 1,600 physicians to do this consulting work.
When doctors and lawyers think about lawyers hiring doctors, they only think of one thing: Hiring doctors to be expert witnesses. It’s important to know, you won’t act as a medical expert, and you won’t participate in medical malpractice cases. There is a big difference between a medical-legal consultant and a medical expert witness in legal matters. In fact, they are two completely different things.”
Armin Feldman is a medical consultant to attorneys.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “An introduction to medical-legal consulting.”
