Bio

I am currently in fellowship training (Multiple Sclerosis, Neuroimmunology, Neuro-otology and Neuro-ophthalmology) after completing a residency in neurology in July 2012. I'll be in practice in a year.

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.
