Personally Speaking

I chose neurology as my specialty because I'm fascinated by the brain, its intricacies and mysteries, especially the ways in which it allows for consciousness, decision-making and behavior.

I often find that the key to understanding a condition is to hear a patient describe it in his or her own words. Neurological symptoms can be subtle and ineffable, so being an attentive listener as patients describe their own experience is invaluable. I think that the doctor and patient are two members of a treatment team who work together to identify a diagnosis and decide on a safe, comfortable, and effective treatment strategy.

I believe my strengths as a physician are my attentiveness and compassion. I reflect on patient’s cases long after they leave the office to think about how they are doing, and I always, unequivocally advocate for them.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my incredible wife and our four beautiful and energetic children.
