Biography & Education


"I believe that good neurological care requires taking the time both to hear my patients’ stories and to exam my patients thoroughly. Diagnosis and treatment work best when neurologists combine our extensive knowledge of the nervous system with a detailed understanding of each person who comes under our care."
