About

Bio

I am a board certified neurologist with sub-specialization in neurocritical care. I take care of acute neurological emergencies such as acute ischemic stroke, intracranial hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or myasthenia crisis.

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.
