I enjoy helping patients understand how their disease is triggered so they can be active participants in controlling the symptoms they are experiencing. Utilizing traditional medications along with more alternative treatments like physical therapy, vitamins, injections and acupuncture often gives patients more relief, and I want to give patients as many options in their treatment as possible. The field of neurology is advancing quickly in terms of diagnosis and treatment options available to patients, and I like to continue to follow my patients along with their primary care physician to make sure they are able to take advantage of these new developments.


I am married with 3 children and grew up and trained in Minnesota. I enjoy travel, keeping physically active with sports, especially tennis and golf, and I still am an avid reader.
