At issue in the present case is the propriety of care and treatment rendered by Stefan Black, M.D. The particular care of hospital personnel and particularly, physicians, is beyond the common knowledge of the layman and therefore. requires expert testimony. As the Court noted in Salasguevara v. Wyeth Laboratories, Inc., (1990) 222 Cal.App 3d 379.385. Medical causation can only be determined by expert medical testimony.

Dr. Lee is board-certified in gastroenterology. Based upon his education, training and experience, and review of all relevant information, it is Dr. Lee professional opinion that Stefan Black, M.D.’s care and treatment of Plaintiff, Donna Hill, complied with the applicable standard of care incumbent upon a gastroenterologist. Based upon Dr. Lee’s training and experience in gastroenterology, he has knowledge of the pertinent standard of care among physicians practicing in the northern California medical community at all times relevant to this matter. Dr. Lee’s expert declaration establishes Stefan Black, M.D.’s complete defense to Plaintiff’s claims of medical negligence.

Dr. Lee’s declaration is sufficient to prove that Stefan Black, M.D., acted within the applicable standard of care in connection with Plaintiff’s care and treatment. As such, there are no triable issues of material fact with respect to the standard of care issue, and thus Stefan Black, M.D. is entitled to summary judgment as a matter of law. (See Part 5 of 5.)
