- Multiple sclerosis
- Immunological disorders of the nervous system
- Headache medicine
I strive to provide individualized and compassionate care to all my patients. It is a pleasure to help them and gives me joy when I see them getting better. I believe it is important to build long term relationships with my patients. I am board certified in headache medicine and fellowship trained in multiple sclerosis, and although the majority of my practice is multiple sclerosis and headache medicine, I also like to see general neurology such as seizures, neuropathy and Parkinson’s disease.
During my free time I enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors, but my 3 kids keep me very busy! I enjoy spending time with friends and family and trying different types of foods.
