Attorney Awards


In over thirty-five years of practice, Doug has represented banks and businesses of all kinds, from international mining companies, airlines, and commercial banks to high tech start-ups and professional service firms. Since 1994, he has focused his practice on the health care industry, supporting medical professionals in matters of regulatory compliance (including Medicare “incident to” billing, Stark, Anti-Kickback, and HIPAA), licensure, professional employment, group organization and management, and strategic alignment with hospital systems, health maintenance organizations, and accountable care organizations. He has advised “from concept to commissioning” in the development of radiation treatment centers, endoscopy centers, imaging centers, home health and hospice service providers, recovery care centers, cardiac catheterization laboratories, and ambulatory surgery centers. He has drafted and reviewed hundreds of physician employment and independent contractor agreements, and drafted, defended, and defeated covenants intended to restrain the ability of a physician to practice in competition with a former employer. He has advised medical billing services, credentialing services, and practice management services. He is an experienced, value-adding, and cost-effective advisor for the business of medicine.
