I aim to recognize each person’s unique stressors and goals of care when approaching their movement disorders. My training and practice have afforded me an opportunity to appropriately utilize numerous diagnostic tools aimed at best identifying the likely causes of symptoms from disease. The journey to living with underlying movement disorders must include timely and useful education to my patients, while recommending a range of targeted and personalized therapeutics aimed at maximizing quality of life with chronic disease. I strive to be a guide for my patients while constantly innovating ways to deliver transparent, accessible, and meaningful care.
