My approach to clinical care is based on compassion, respect and a team-based model. I work with wonderful and involved advanced practice providers and neurology residents with the objective of providing updated, evidence-based diagnostic and treatment advice. I strongly encourage patients to take a lead in their own care and consider them to be active members of our team. Questions about diagnostic and treatment strategies are essential for success of our model.
