About

Bio

I am a neurologist at the University of Kansas Medical Center specializing in epilepsy and seizures. I also treat patients with headaches, multiple sclerosis and neuropathy. I have a special interest in neurological diseases in women.

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.
