Welcome to the Department of Neurology

We have an incredible team of neurologists, scientists, nurses, neuropsychologists, therapists, trainees, and staff who are singularly focused on making a difference in the lives of people with neurological disorders. Whether it is to partner with patients and families to treat symptoms and ease suffering or to be the beacon of hope and optimism for the future, we aim to treat every patient like our only patient. Whether it is to passionately pursue cures for stroke or Parkinson’s Disease or to advance our understanding of Alzheimer’s disease or brain cancer, we seek the truth to benefit others. Whether it is to train physicians to become neurologists or to train neurologists to become scientists, we aim to create an environment of creativity, discovery and fulfillment.

We have an incredible history that provides us with a foundation of collegiality, growth, mentorship and inclusiveness. The past great leaders of this department include Dr. Robert J. Joynt (1966-1986), Dr. Robert C. Griggs (1987-2008), and Dr. Steven A. Goldman (2008-2012) and their legacy is nothing short of awe-inspiring. It is from their inspiration and all the great neurologists that contributed to our past successes that we continue to pursue our dreams to Learn, Discover, Heal, Create - and Make the World Ever Better for patients with neurological disease.

I invite you to browse these pages to learn about each of our faculty, our clinical programs, our ongoing research efforts, and our training programs. If you would like to contact our department, please email us. We would be happy to answer your questions.
