Currently I am serving as Walter L. Shepeard Chair in Clinical Pathology at Augusta University. My previous engagements include serving as Professor of Pathology at University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, Professor of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh, and Chief Medical Officer in the Department of Veterans Affairs Senior Executive Service. I received my MB,BS (MD) from Armed Forces Medical College, Pune, India, and a PhD in Medicine and MBA from University of Pittsburgh. I am board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, with certification for Special Competence in Immunopathology, and have Certification as Physician Executive. I discovered two genes relevant to Lung Biology and published over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

It is unlikely to do you any harm. If the dog is still alive 10 days from the incident, he did not have rabies. If the dog dies or runs away within 10 days, see your doctor for consideration of rabies vaccine.

Blood test for what? If you mean repeat liver function tests, give it 3-4 months. Do not drink alcohol in the interim. Wish you good health!

A normal serum calcium level does not rule out vitamin D deficiency. Given the high prevalence of vitamin D deficiency, you could get tested. Alternatively you could take 2000 to 4000 units of vitamin D3 and it will not cause toxicity. Wish you good health!
