Practice Philosophy: I put patients first and treat them the way I would want to be treated myself. I completed a rigorous training program thirty years ago, and since then I have gathered extensive experience treating a wide variety of neurological diseases. I take a conservative approach to problems whenever possible and resort to the surgical option only when there is no better alternative.
