New & Established Patients Call

I care for people with seizures. Treatment regimens are tailored to the individual. Available modalities include medications, lifestyle change, special diets, hormonal therapy, devices, and, when safe, brain surgery. I prefer to inform, share my experiences, and help the patient decide which treatments are best for them. Ultimately they are in charge.

Biography

I was born and raised in New York City. Although most of my training was at Columbia University in New York, I have also trained and worked at Stanford University and the University of Pennsylvania. Having that diverse background I can say with confidence that the clinical epilepsy care at Froedtert is truly exceptional.
