She went on to her neurology residency at New York University in New York City. Following residency, Dr. Douenias started her career at Long Island Jewish Medical Center/Queens Hospital Center as a faculty member where she supervised neurology and other residents. She moved to the Finger Lakes Region with her family and eventually started a very successful neurology practice with her partner for a period of 13 years. Together, they joined a hospital practice in the area and continued to see patients at the same office until 2016 when she joined University of Rochester. Always interested and active in headache and academic medicine, she became subspecialty boarded (headache medicine) in 2008 and has maintained this status. She splits her time between the UR Headache center in Rochester where she sees patients and focuses on the education of residents, fellows and medical students. She continues to maintain a general neurology practice in the Southern Tier area with University of Rochester. Her interest in headache medicine started early in her career as she has been a headache sufferer herself and finds she has a particular understanding and empathy of others with headache. She enjoys spending time with her family, knitting, reading, going for long walks near her home at Keuka Lake and any opportunity to mentor young people interested in careers in medicine/neurology.CredentialsEducation1985MD | Wayne State University School of MedicinePost-doctoral Training & Residency07/01/1986 - 06/30/1989Residency in Neurology at NYU-Langone Medical Center07/01/1985 - 06/30/1986Internship in Internal Medicine at Henry Ford HospitalClose WindowSchedule an appointment with Caren C.
