An attempt has been made to review what the courts have recently said about medical witnesses and their testimony. Many questions can be asked about particular decisions, and indeed, an entire article could be written about individual cited cases. The only purpose of this paper is to review the recent decisions in order to give you a panoramic view of the type of questions which the courts are being asked to answer about the medical witness and his testimony.
