About

Bio

I am a Neurologist in Private Practice. I am a consulting Neurologist at Saint Francis Hospital,Memphis. This is a tertiary care hospital with 600 beds and Saint Francis, Bartlett. I am the chief of Neurology for both hospitals. I began my practice in 1996. I did my residency at New York Medical College, Valhalla NY. I then served as the chief Resident of the neurology program at University Hospital. I did my fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology at University of Louisville. My area of interest is general neurology and neuromuscular disorders. We also have a Autonomic Disorder Clinic, which serves a large area and patients come from as far as 100 miles.
