WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

Because of my family experiences I was drawn into the field of medicine early in my life. One of my close family members suffered from epilepsy since she was very young. I witnessed the adverse effect of epilepsy on socio-economic, education and quality of life of not just the patient, but the entire family. I learned that a doctor’s job is not only to prescribe medication but also provide education, counseling and support when dealing with diseases like epilepsy. My two young children keep my wife and I active and on our toes. We take them hiking, camping, swimming and any other outdoor activities possibly available that keeps them busy and promises a full night’s sleep. I enjoy wood working and wood carving in my free time and enjoy seeing raw wood transformed to a useful daily accessory or an artistic gift.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research is focused on finding a cure for epilepsy. I conduct clinical trials for emerging and promising medical therapies in epilepsy. My work also involves finding new methods to detect the cause of epilepsy which can then guide surgeons to achieve the best outcome. With the help of these clinical trials and innovative techniques I hope to offer patients, whose seizures are hard to treat, the latest and cutting edge nonconventional treatment options.
