Need help finding medical expert witness in New York state

#1
What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York

Hello, I'm an employee with a small upstate New York lawfirm, which has only one lawyer, who is currently engaged in litigation on behalf of himself with a hospital over an emergency room mistake. The lawyer does not have experience with medical malpractice cases and needs to find an an emergency room medical expert witness. He has run into the typical problem of local doctors being reluctant to testify against the hospital they do business with. He has contacted a referral agency, but is reluctant to pay a $1,500 fee to obtain access to a list of emergency room medical expert witnesses.
Can anyone help us find a doctor or doctors who are willing to work as emergency medical malpractice expert witnesses in New York state?

Yes but the lawyer still needs a lawyer. Med mal is a very specialized field and he should have already realized that he is far out of his depth.
