Patient Care Bio

I am a physician-scientist board certified in neurology, with fellowship training in movement disorders and dementia.

I provide comprehensive clinical care for patients with movement disorders such as Parkinson disease, dystonia, and essential tremor. My approach is to leverage any and all available strategies to address patient-centered treatment goals, using patient and care-partner education, medications and nonpharmacological strategies, and advanced interventions such as botulinum toxin injections and deep brain stimulation where appropriate.
