James A. Schuster, MD

 

William B. Harvey, MD

Will graduated from Alabama Medical School in 1996, interned at New York University, and completed residency training at Georgetown Medical Center. He is a Board certified general radiologist at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco and joined DPR’s Medical Advisory Board in 2010.

Patrick J. Kelly, MD

Patrick is a prior Chairman of New York University’s Neurosurgery Department and President of the Brain Tumor Foundation. He is a renowned brain surgeon who has performed more than 6,500 surgeries. Patrick has pioneered image segmentation methodologies in human anatomy via Computer-Assisted Stereotactic Neurosurgery and minimally invasive surgical techniques for the removal of brain tumors.

James A. Schuster, MD

Jamie is a board certified radiologist whose professional interests span from clinical radiology to practice management to research. After graduating from the University of Rochester School Of Medicine (Alpha Omega Alpha), he completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Rochester and became chief resident, where he focused on MR imaging. He then joined a private practice in Rochester where he became partner after three years, Chief of Radiology Service at a contracted multidisciplinary facility, and then co-chief of Clinical Diagnostics for his group. In 2000 he was elected President (and eventually CEO) of his group, which saw volumes double and profits grow dramatically during his seven years of leadership. In 2007, he and his partners sold the group to a publicly traded company. Jamie continued on in clinical practice after the sale, and was also then able to devote more time to other professional interests including working with DPR as a consultant, consulting as a medical-legal expert, and branching out into clinical research. He believes the DPR solutions are not only useful and interesting but eventually mandatory as the pressures mount to accurately digest more and more data, document communications, and adapt to dramatically lower reimbursement rates.
