Dr. Victoria Levasseur is a board certified neurologist with specialized fellowship training in multiple sclerosis and neuro-inflammatory disease. She obtained her medical degree at University of Missouri – Columbia, and completed neurology residency and fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. She entered the field of neurology through the lens of scientific research, which provided her with a structured approach to unanswered questions in the field of neuroimmunology.
Her decision to join MCN was based on her drive to provide top-notch, quality care and the opportunity to work in a highly collaborative team-based environment – both of which are imperative to the success of a practice.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Levasseur enjoys spending time with her family and friends, playing the cello, and learning about art. As a long distance runner, she believes that prioritizing self-care and staying on an exercise schedule can support overall health and help reduce stress.
