About

Bio

I specialize in helping patients with cerebrovascular diseases (strokes, brain hemorrhages, subarachnoid hemorrhages) I am board certified in Vascular Neurology, Neurocritical care and NeuroImaging I see patients in all stages of their disease, starting from emergency room and intensive care to follow up in clinic. I also see patient with TIA in my clinic. I prefer to see patients before they will develop a stroke and try to prevent it by counseling on healthy diet, exercise, and correction of other stroke risk factors.

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.
