Delve into the criminal case of Richard Paulus, an interventional cardiologist indicted for allegedly providing medically unnecessary stents, based on angiogram results suggesting arterial blockages in cardiac arteries.

In this LinkedIn Live event, the lead defense attorneys and Advize’s Senior Director will discuss the case, prosecution theories, and defense strategies that led to Dr. Paulus’ acquittal and the dropping of charges.
