Patient Care Philosophy
I am committed to understanding each of my patients as a person. This allows me to provide the best care possible. Neurology is a challenging branch of medicine, and I encourage my patients to see themselves as partners in their care. Finally, even if it sounds a little old fashioned, I consider it a privilege to take care of my patients, and I try to communicate that.
I collect petrified wood (some of my furniture is made from petrified wood) and art. I enjoy hiking, biking and travel.
Movement disorders, including conditions like Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia, general neurology and inpatient neurology.
Basic research on: how the brain is injured by stroke, brain energy metabolism and the functions of brain glial cells (the non-neuronal cells).
