  • “I approach even the most complex patients with the understanding that all disorders are treatable.”

I approach even the most complex patients with the understanding that while few disorders are "curable", all disorders are treatable. The most effective approach often begins with attentive listening and proactive planning. I work closely with a team of dedicated, rigorous multi-disciplinary specialists to provide a comprehensive approach to complex neurological care. Our goal is to increase both the quality and the duration of life for children and adults affected by serious neurological disorders.

Although I see children and adults with a wide range of neurological disorders, my primary areas of clinical and scientific expertise include genetic and inflammatory disorders of the brain and spinal cord. Many of these disorders are associated with a high level of disability and require complex care strategies that necessitate the involvement of multiple specialists. I make every effort to incorporate the medical priorities of the patient and caregiver in devising the medical plan. My goal is to provide both information and guidance to patients and families making complex medical decisions.
