About

Bio

I am board certified in Neurology and have subspecialty certification in Sleep Medicine. I have been in private practice since 1998. I am currently the medical director of The Arlington Sleep Disorder Center.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
