Mar 17, 2022

Chase DiMarco talks to Dr. Amy Fogelman, MD. Dr. Amy is a board-certified Internal Medicine Specialist based in Massachusetts. She was a primary care doctor for 18 years before she expanded her career in the medical-legal field given her experience as an internist after seeking a career coach and realizing that she was giving her husband free medical-legal advice. She is passionate about internal medicine and medical education. After close to two decades as a primary care physician in the Boston area, Amy founded MED LAW Consulting in 2018. She pairs expert witnesses to attorneys in legal matters. She also provides training for newbie medical experts who are interested in starting this side gig.
