By | May 10, 2021

“You’re a clinician. You had a patient die under your care, and now your hospital is being sued. You are not named in the lawsuit, but you are being asked to give a deposition.

Judy Melinek is a forensic pathologist and CEO, PathologyExpert Inc.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “What to do when physicians get subpoenaed as witnesses.”
