I am happy to discuss quality or patient safety in pathology and laboratory medicine.I generally exchange views with laboratory professionals, but will discuss questions with educated patients and interested individuals from other fields.
Before writing me, please respect my ground rules:
I can not give medical advice over the internet; please do not contact me about a particular medical problem.
I am an officer of the College of American Pathologists, but do not speak for the College using my private web site or email address. Please contact the CAP for official College Communication.
If you are sharing a patient safety event, please do not include any information that identifies a particular patient, caregiver, or laboratory.
In general, I do not serve as an expert witness in legal cases.On very rare occasions when a particularly interesting case presents itself I have agreed to give testimony; in these cases proceeds are sent to a charitable organization of my choosing.
