Background

I joined the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group to better care for my patients.

As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a physician scientist. After doing basic science and clinical research in medical and graduate schools, internship, neurology residency, and fellowship, I returned to the clinical arena.

It has become more evident that diseases of the brain, nerves, and muscles are very rarely curable and treatments are largely unsatisfactory. Kaiser Permanente offers a unique comprehensive way of treating conditions in a multidisciplinary manner through an advanced electronic medical records system.

I have special training in movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s Disease, and am kept constantly informed about my patients through Kaiser Permanente’s integrated, multi-specialty system.

I hope that you don’t have a neurological problem, but if you do, I look forward to partnering with you as you and your family journey towards getting well and dealing with conditions that are likely going to be with you for a long time.
