Bio 

Proud Veteran and Iraq VET x2. I served in or near Balad Iraq twice (2005-06 & 2008). I was decorated in 2005 as the 1st USAF FP Physician to EVER manage a combat, surgical ICU in an active war zone. I managed the 7am-7pm SICU shift there where my daily intake/care included 25 new and or transitional traumas per day in this 35 bed ICU in our tent hospital. .{{ CONTINUED VIA MIL EXPERIENCE}} SEE DISCUSSION ABOVE (BROKEN UP IN THE 3 SECTIONS )

MAJ/SOCOM/WOUNDED WARRIOR
Proud Veteran and Iraq VET x2. I served in or near Balad Iraq twice (2005-06 & 2008). I was decorated in 2005 as the 1st USAF Family Practice physician to EVER manage a combat, surgical ICU in an active war zone.

Treated up to 28 of the most severely injured patients of the war daily as the Combat, 332nd, AFTH "Attending" (7 am- 7pm) for the Surgical ICU. Every patient was in critical condition with open abdominal/chest wounds, craniotomies, severe burns (one pt 90+ % ), every penetrating wound imaginable & virtually every patient on Ventilator support. I managed the SICU during the day & my friend/fellow Physician Maj. Mark R. managed the 7 PM -7 AM shift. It was verified in writing as to my accomplishment of being the 1st USAF FM/FP Physician in the HISTORY of the USAF (maybe DOD) to manage a Combat, AFTH (tent!) in an active war zone (Sunni Triangle) as the 'Attending' ( I did NOT have any "adverse events" & was told that my morbidity/mortality rate was among the lowest of OIF )- Decorated....
