WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a pediatric neurologist with a sub-specialization in diagnosing and treating childhood epilepsy. It is so fun to interact with kids and their families, and I find it extremely rewarding helping children lead healthier and more vibrant lives. In addition to guiding families through selecting the best seizure medications, I am glad to be able to offer other therapy modalities, such as the ketogenic diet and, in some cases, epilepsy surgery. When not at work, I try to stay active with my wife and daughter by hiking, camping, skiing, and exploring all the great restaurants in Durham.
