Over the last three years he was involved with patient care and teaching rheumatology to a new Internal Medicine Residency Program of HCA in Myrtle Beach, SC, until he semi-retired last July, 2018 to devote most of his time to legal medical expert reviews of the medical histories of victims who have died or been harmed from the inappropriate prescribing of prescription opioids for chronic non-cancer pain.
