Dr. Herbst is an M.D. board certified radiologist with a Ph.D. in physical chemistry who completed a fellowship in MRI and is now practicing in St. Petersburg, Florida. He is a nationally known expert in MRI, but he reads all kinds of medical images, including x-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds, and nuclear medicine scans, specializing in musculoskeletal radiology and neuroradiology.
Dr. Herbst also lectures to physicians, attorneys, and insurance case managers around the country about radiology subjects such as MRI, radiology errors, disc herniations, and brain injury.
Attorneys from the United States and Canada send medical images to Dr. Herbst for his unbiased review. As a pre-trial consultant, he tells the attorneys what the images show and perhaps just as important, what they do not show, which helps plaintiff and defense attorneys alike decide how to move forward with their malpractice or personal injury cases.
While Dr. Herbst does not ask the attorney what side of the case he or she represents before reading a scan, currently about 70-80% of the cases that come in the door are from plaintiffs and 20-30% from defendants.
