Although I have specialized in caring for patients with neuromuscular diseases and multiple sclerosis, I enjoy seeing patients with a wide range of neurological disorders. I feel blessed that my work involves helping others and trying to alleviate suffering caused by illnesses.
I study and perform Indian classical music on a stringed instrument – Sarod. Other interests include photography, reading, and traveling.
The neurologist was amazing! Very compassionate and helped me so much!
PA was excellent as well!
Dr. Aggarwal gave me back my life, PA-C Donald Altenburg has helped me to keep it. Also, your office personnel are consistently welcoming and helpful.
