I'm an emergency physician in Las Vegas (I've been practicing emergency medicine for 15 years). I'm also the Regional Medical Director for Envision Physician Services in Las Vegas. I manage 10 emergency departments and 200 emergency clinicians. After graduating from Harvard University, I attended Stony Brook Medical School. I trained in emergency medicine at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt/Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City, where I was chief resident. Since then, I have worked in clinics and hospitals all over the world, including Morocco, Nepal, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Haiti. As a former Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner, I continue to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault in Las Vegas, where I currently practice emergency medicine. I am the author of the medical thriller “Dr. Vigilante,” which was #1 on Amazon two years ago. I also write for various medical journals and blogs, including “Emergency Medicine News,” “The Doctor Blog,” and “Kevin MD.”
