About

Bio

I am a neurologist with primary focus on understanding and management of poorly explained neurological conditions. These may include chronic pain conditions, memory complaints, numbness, dizziness, or other "subjective" symptoms. Subjective symptoms are those where the patient reports problems but not much is seen on tests to explain those symptoms. This is not an easy area of focus and contains a number of inherent problems. However, there are many people with such conditions and I chose to work with these during much of my career. People seeking my opinion should know that I beleve improvement in life-function is a critical determinant of treatment success.

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.
