About

Bio

I'm a husband and father of four. I am originally from West Virginia and was educated at Marshall University and the WVU School of Medicine, followed by a three year emergency medicine residency at Methodist Hospital of Indiana. I have practiced emergency medicine for 21 years in South Carolina. Now, in addition to telemedicine with HealthTap, I do locums (or travel) medicine in five states around the country. I am a former USANG flight surgeon and DoD consultant, and I have expertise in radiation accidents and in the management of the medical effects of Weapons of Mass Destruction. In addition I am a columnist for the Greenville News, The SouthCarolina Baptist Courier and Emergency Medicine News. I am also a frequent blogger at www.edwinleap.com/blog. I am a Christian.
