Hi, I'm Dr. Glenn Birnbaum, a residency-trained, board-certified Emergency Medicine Specialist and a fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. In addition to over 30 years' experience in clinical practice as an emergency physician, I have extensive additional experience as core faculty for an emergency medicine residency training program, leadership of several high-volume, high-acuity emergency departments, and leadership of a large regional Emergency Physician group.

I specialize in Emergency Room Failure to Diagnose cases and have assisted attorneys in 50-100 personal injury and medical malpractice cases, including frequent trial and deposition testimony in federal court and state courts nationwide.

As an emergency medicine expert, I diligently review the facts of the matter at hand, identify all the relevant issues, and provide an extensive analysis of the matter. Hallmarks of my work as an expert include: clear, consistent, well-supported opinions, explanation of complex medical concepts in a way attorneys and jurors understand, a sincere and professional demeanor, attention to detail, and easy accessibility (I return messages the same or next day).

Thanks for your interest in reviewing my credentials; I look forward working with you on an upcoming emergency medicine or personal injury matter.
