this information on the web site of Rudolfinerhaus.<

Zimpfer's credentials are virtually meritless. As a former medical Radiology educator I'd say that an anesthesiologist-- an M.D. who regulates cardiopulmonary and blood gas functions during surgery-- would be one of the least qualified to diagnose a poisoning case (particularly one with an M.B.A. and an administrative interest in the facility). A medical pathologist, or an internist with a certificate in toxicology would pass muster. I don't know the credentials of the M.D. who resigned after expressing skepticism, but presumably he'd be better positioned to make a call than this Zimpfer character. As Junaid implies, M.D. doesn't equal M.D. This case is starting to smell a bit. Not that Yushenko couldn't have been poisoned.
