About

Bio

I am a clinical neurologist and researcher in Atlanta, GA. Areas of clinical research have included migraine, stroke, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and epilepsy. I am also an author and freelance writer. One of my professional areas of expertise is migraine, and in particular the beneficial effects of an ancestral style diet on headaches. I have written on the book on the subject entitled "The Migraine Miracle."

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.
