Amy G. Fogelman, MD is Board Certified in Internal Medicine
with 17 years of experience seeing patients at ambulatory practices
in the Boston area. She went to med school at BU and stayed in
Boston for her internal medicine residency at Beth Israel. She did
a chief year in Primary Care at the VA Hospital in West Roxbury.
She has been awarded prizes in clinical excellence and leadership
at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).
While consulting for personal injury and medical malpractice
firms in the Boston area, Dr. Fogelman noticed a void in the
consulting field, which her consulting firm, MED LAW, seeks to
fill. MED LAW Consulting, LLC uses this Primary Care model, where
Dr. Fogelman serves as the litigator’s own personal medical expert
for the entire case as if the lawyer had an in-house physician on
staff and now she teaches. In 2020, she began formally advising
medical professionals on the ins-and-outs of medical expert witness
work and even has a course.
We discuss common misconceptions among physicians about this
type of work, how to get started, how to avoid screwing up your
first few cases, the compensation and why one should avoid just
doing defense work.
