Introduction For a detailed bio and contact info, click here.

In Spring 2002, my wife Karen and I began researching the career of my father, Henry J. Heimlich MD, famous for "the Heimlich maneuver." To our astonishment, we uncovered a remarkable unseen history of fraud.

Since Spring 2003, as a result of my outreach to journalists, our research has been the basis for scores of print and broadcast media reports.

Via my blog, since 2010 I've done original document-based reporting, mostly about fraud and/or ethical misconduct. (A reporter at a New Jersey newspaper called me "an investigative blogger.")

Newsworthy tips are always welcome. E-mails marked "confidential" will be treated with the utmost discretion.
