Expert Witness Profile

Dr. Roth's Forensic Psychiatric expertise arises from almost 50 years of unusually broad and deep clinical experience, knowledge and training in both public and private ambulatory and academic hospital-based settings.

He has achieved and maintained Quadruple American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology Certifications in Psychiatry (1983), Addiction Psychiatry (1993, 2003, 2013,), Geriatric Psychiatry (1994, 2004, 2014,) and Forensic Psychiatry (1999, 2009); and, also, Lifetime Certification in Addiction Medicine by the American Society of Addiction Medicine in 1989. These accomplishments are the foundation of his clear explanations of nuance and complexity; particularly when there are interactions of one or more of these areas of focus.
