My Passion for Healthcare

My mother’s affliction with a chronic, progressive neurological disease has undoubtedly been my inspiration to become a neurologist. I saw the toll neurological disease takes on the physical, personal, social, and mental aspects of a person’s life and those of their loves ones; I hoped to help others in similar circumstances. As a mature neurologist I strive to treat both physical and mental symptoms, providing guidance and reassurance about the disease and its progression, and being part of the support system for the family. I consider my role in patients’ lives a privilege.

Services I Provide

  1. Diagnosis and Treatment of all Neurological Conditions (migraine, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease)
  2. Diagnosis and Treatment, Neuromuscular Diseases (e.g. ALS, Myasthenia Gravis, muscular dystrophy, myopathy, neuropathy)
  3. EMG/NCS (electromyography and nerve conduction studies)
  4. Botox injections for chronic migraine, cervical dystonia, blepharospasm/hemifacial spasm, muscle spasticity
  5. EEG (electroencephalogram) interpretation

My Clinical Focus

In addition to treating general neurological conditions, I subspecialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular diseases. Examples of which include Guillain-Barre Syndrome, CIDP, peripheral neuropathy (diseases of the nerves in the hands and feet which can be caused by diabetes, medications or toxins, or be hereditary in nature), ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, Myasthenia Gravis, and muscular dystrophies. Testing the nerve and muscles, by performing an EMG/NCS, is a crucial part of evaluating neuromuscular disease and so it too is part of my subspecialty.
