WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My primary goal as a physician is to provide excellent care to patients with epilepsy. I have a background in mathematics. We live in a time where technology has an major influence on our lives. While I am very interested in helping influence this, there is something about people listening to people that cannot be duplicated. Much of my current work focuses on veterans, and it is with much gratitude that I do this.
