Dr. William Gaya
28 years experience male
Dr. William Gayá grew up in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. His father was Vice President of a local bank and his mother a very talented seamstress. He was inspired by his older sisters whom all pursued teaching careers in Biological Sciences. His interest in Neurology started while in college during an anatomy class. "The descriptive nature of the course while unveiling the secrets of the nervous system fascinated me" - recalls Dr. Gayá. After finishing his studies in University of Puerto Rico, he moved with his wife to North Carolina to complete his training in Neuromuscular Disorders and Electromyography at Chapel Hill. In 1997 joined a group of Neurologist in Marion County Florida involved in acute stroke, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Research. Today, Dr. Gayá offers consultation services to this treasured Central Florida region.
