For over twenty years, John has served the healthcare industry, focusing primarily on helping clinicians and administrators navigate the complex regulatory and compliance issues they face every day.  John’s experience includes serving as in-house counsel, general counsel, and chief compliance officer for health care entities. In supporting clients, John has worked with health care related federal and state regulatory and law enforcement agencies in virtually every type of issue that a provider could encounter. His extensive knowledge of health law and health care delivery and payment has allowed John to be an effective advocate for providers in federal and state litigation, legislation, administrative rulemaking, and other regulatory matters. John’s diverse in-house experience allows him to be a uniquely insightful compliance advisor who can simplify and assist in efficiently integrating compliance requirements into health care operations.  

He has an extensive background in policy development, audits and internal and external investigations, corrective action, risk management,  contract management, governance, and compliance education. Clients also benefit from his diverse regulatory experience that includes fraud & abuse, Stark and Anti-back, survey and certification, compliance advice, CON, information privacy and security, grants, medical staff, reimbursement, 340B, and quality.

John’s purpose as a health care attorney is to support providers in serving their patients by simplifying the regulatory burdens and other obstacles that can otherwise encumber provider/patient relationships. Coming from a healthcare family, as the son of dedicated medical oncologist, and Vermont’s first board certified oncology nurse, John appreciates the dedication of clinicians and the challenges they face. John works every day to support the providers so that they can serve others.
