About Me

I am a specialist in neuromuscular medicine. I diagnose and treat people with neuromuscular diseases, such as ALS, neuropathy, myopathy, and myasthenia gravis. I always want to make an accurate diagnosis and provide effective treatment. However, treating every person with humanity is equally important to me. I believe in listening carefully to people as they describe their symptoms and as they express concerns they may have. Listening and treating people with respect is key to the doctor-patient relationship.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

Neurology is being transformed by scientific advances and exciting new treatments are becoming available. My research focus is on the disease ALS.

I encourage and welcome patients to participate in clinical research that will move us forward.
