About

Bio

I am a general neurologist, trained in adult neurology though I do treat a few children for neurological conditions. Most of the patients I see for headache/migraine, back neck pain (with or without radiculopathy or myelopathy), epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. Of course, I do see people for all other types of neurological conditions as well, including diabetic neuropathy and other causes of peripheral neuropathy, traumatic brain injury, stroke and TIA, dementia, Parkinson's, Huntington's, essential tremor, other movement disorders, and muscle problems. I've been in practice for 7 years, and I've been with the same hospital-affiliated clinic for 5 years now.

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.

Higher density: The foot is larger, so it has more nerve endings. The penis has a higher density of nerve endings than the foot, particularly in the glans (the tip).

Thank you, your answer was very helpful! Thanks. I will get it checked. I sometimes have gut trouble maybe I should be staying away from sweets too (they seem to be the culprits)
HealthTap member
Thank you, your answer was very helpful! I haven't had any of those other symptoms, but now I know I should probably make an appointment. Wasn't sure how serious it was. Thanks!

I suppose the Taoists were correct. When you think in a groove, your perception is limited. A man of Tao UNlearns something every day.
