WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I care for patients with neuromuscular disorders, which include muscular dystrophy, neuropathy, autoimmune muscle, and nerve conditions, as well as inherited ones. A lot of my work is focused on a holistic approach, so I don’t just focus on the treatment of the disease, but also the way the disease is affecting the rest of the patient’s life and quality of life. I will spend the majority of my visit talking with the patient, then do a full neurological exam, and then discuss potential options and potential diagnoses. If it is a condition that is autoimmune, we can discuss various therapies that can be used and other needs at home related to mobility or basic function. Our patients have a variety of different conditions that can cause problems with breathing, cardiac abnormalities, endocrine dysfunction, and mobility problems. Our clinic here at Duke is unique because we offer multiple consultants working as a team to give the best holistic care to a patient.
