Whether you are an attorney, an employer, or a patient, finding a good plastic surgery expert witness is not always easy. First of all, what constitutes “good”? To answer this, you may want to read our plastic surgery expert witness page. Second, what tools or resources are available to find such plastic surgeons? This blog post aims to connect you with 4 resources which may be helpful.
1. Google (Google.com)
Let’s face it – we use it to find almost everything. And that includes plastic surgery expert witnesses. For example, if you Google “Plastic Surgery Expert Witness Miami”, you will find Dr. Zaydon. The advantage of using Google is that it is quick and easy. Plus, it even provides reviews to give you an idea of the popularity of the doctor. However, it should be noted that these reviews can be written by anyone and therefore are not a direct reflection on the doctor’s ability as a plastic surgery expert witness.
2. SEAK (SeakExperts.com)
Seak is a great tool for finding expert witnesses of all specialties, including plastic surgery. The entire website is devoted to listing – and categorizing – expert witnesses. You can search by name, area, and specialty. It gives you a great variety of specialists, including a brief overview of their experience / biography. For example, here is Dr. Zaydon’s SEAK profile page.
3. ALM Experts (ALMExperts.com)
ALM experts is another directory and as such is similar to SEAK. It also lists experts of many fields, including plastic surgery. One of the great features of this site is its “Verdict Search” tool. It gives you the ability to read past testimonies by the doctors on previous cases. Understandably, for attorneys this is very useful and interesting information, as it may reveal any potential bias of any of the doctors. Dr. Zaydon is very proud of his objective testimony history, which is a result of his application of a code of ethics to all expert witness testimonies.

For example, here is Dr. Zaydon’s JurisPro Profile.
