Updated: Feb 16

Praxis Doctor Shaking Hand

I am Dr. Ramzi Asfour, President of Praxis Medical Experts, a distinguished expert witness consulting firm led by medical professionals. At Praxis Med Experts, we offer specialized assistance to legal professionals, leveraging our team's diverse expertise across various medical domains.

As an infectious disease doctor dual-board certified in internal medicine and infectious diseases, I want to share insights on selecting the right medical expert for your specific case. While some situations call for a straightforward match, such as choosing an orthopedic surgeon for an orthopedic case, others may require a more nuanced approach. Your case might involve multiple specialists, and the opposing side may also have engaged specialists. We can assist you in navigating these complexities.

Your legal case may involve complexities that require input from multiple medical specialists, especially considering the potential involvement of opposing experts. We excel in guiding you through these intricate scenarios, aiding in the identification of the optimal medical specialist to support your case effectively.

I am personally available to engage with you, offering guidance on identifying the ideal medical specialist tailored to your unique requirements. Whether you seek expertise related to causation or require insights into the standard of care within a specific medical discipline, I am here to facilitate your needs. For example, as an infectious disease specialist, my insights into causation can prove invaluable, even if direct involvement in the patient's care by an infectious disease specialist is lacking.

An example of a scenario where it may be difficult to choose the right expert is in the case of a patient with kidney disease and a diabetic foot wound infection. Which of the following experts do you need and would be helpful to your case? An infectious diseases specialist, a podiatrist, a general orthopedic specialist, a foot and ankle orthopedic specialist, a hospitalist, an outpatient primary care doctor, an endocrinologist (diabetes specialist), a general surgeon (who may have seen the patient due to the lack of availability of a podiatrist), a vascular surgeon, or a nephrologist (kidney specialist).

Matching the right specialist with the patient's history can be challenging, and sometimes, a slightly different specialty with a similar level of expertise is preferred. We offer free consultations to attorneys seeking advice on choosing the ideal medical expert, whether for the plaintiff or defense side.

At Praxis Med Experts, we offer complimentary consultations to attorneys seeking guidance in selecting the ideal medical expert, irrespective of their position on the plaintiff or defense side. Reach out to us through our website,, with any inquiries or uncertainties you may have. I, Dr. Ramzi Asfour, stand ready to assist you in navigating the complexities of your case.
