STATE OF FLORIDA
COUNTY OF DUVAL
††††††††††† BEFORE ME the undersigned authority personally appeared Dr. Jacob Greene, who being first duly sworn, deposes and says:
1.†††††††† My name is Jacob Green, and I am a medical doctor in Jacksonville, Florida, practicing in a small group at the Southeastern Neuroscience Institute, P.A.†† I make this statement on personal information, and I am over the age of 18 years.
2.†††††††† I have been in practice as a physician for 34 years and am certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in neurology.† Presently I hold staff privileges at Memorial Hospital, St. Lukeís Hospital, and Methodist Medical Center, all in Jacksonville.† I hold a Ph.D. as well as an M.D. degree, and I did post-graduate residencies in both neurology and neurological surgery at the University of Alabama Hospital at Birmingham, as well as a residency in neurology at the Medical University of South Carolina Medical Center.† I have taught medical students and have served on the teaching faculty at the University of Floridaís Shands Hospital, among other institutions.† Presently, I am licensed to practice medicine in Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Virginia.† I have published three textbooks and more than sixty papers in various peer-reviewed journals.
3.†††††††† Although I have not physically examined Theresa Marie Schiavo,† I base my opinions about her condition on a review of her medical records and on scrutiny of a videotape of the patient, dated January 22, 2000.
4.†††††††† Ms Schiavo is not in a persistent vegetative state.† There is clear reactivity and an emotional responsitivity to the person who comes into her room as shown on the videotape.† This reactivity shows a significant amount of brain damage, but it is my opinion based on reasonable medical probability that she is not brain dead or in a persistent vegetative state as of the date of this videotaping.
FURTHER AFFIANT SAYETH NAUGHT.
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Jacob Green, M.D., Ph.D.
The foregoing instrument was acknowledged before me this ____ day of May, 2001, by Jacob Green, who is personally known to me OR who produced a Florida driverís license as identification, and who did / did not take an oath.
