The role of the expert witness is to serve as an unbiased expert whose opinion can guide the jury as the trier of fact in reaching its conclusions. Even highly-educated judges and attorneys may be unfamiliar with the often highly technical nature of medical testimony, and it is incumbent on the expert to deliver opinions in a clearly understandable and compelling fashion. At Neurosurgery MedLegal Services, you’ll find a qualified medical expert committed to formulating opinions with honesty and due care and truthfully expressing opinions in areas requested by the client where the expert feels qualified to render an opinion. Call Neurosurgery MedLegal Services for an expert opinion regarding vital issues in your medical malpractice or personal injury case, such as:
- The standard of care in neurosurgery in the jurisdiction
- Deviation from the standard of care
- Causation in regard to the plaintiff’s injuries
- The necessity of surgery for the plaintiff’s injuries
Neurosurgery MedLegal Services conducts a comprehensive Independent Medical Examination as requested by workers’ compensation insurance carriers and other insurance companies in personal injury claims.

Dr. Jeffrey Oppenheimer is comfortable testifying in a variety of settings and delivers opinions in a professional and compelling fashion. Our reports and opinions can be adequately explained and defended as necessary in depositions, trial or administrative hearings.
AMA Principles of Medical Ethics 9.4.1 recognizes the obligation physicians owe to one another to hold each other to the ethical standards of the profession. One way this is accomplished is through peer review. Physician peer review is a well-accepted practice for improving quality of care and patient safety. Utilizing evidence-based medicine, Dr. Jeffrey Oppenheimer is available in malpractice and other complaints to review the quality of care rendered, standard of care, clinical quality, medical necessity and other relevant factors.
