- Assistant Professor – Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology
I have always been moved by how epilepsy can have a profound effect on a person’s life, impacting one’s physical and emotional health, family life/planning, and sense of independence. As a result, I believe that the management of epilepsy is more than just about controlling seizures, but also about giving patients back the confidence to live their lives. As a specialist in epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology, I will provide comprehensive epilepsy care for patients to achieve these goals.
