New & Established Patients Call

My goal is that each patient has the best plan of care, a complete understanding of what we know about his or her condition, and all questions answered at each visit. Treatment strategies are customized to patients' individual needs, values, and concerns. Treatment modalities include lifestyle modifications, diet, hormonal therapies, medications, brain surgery, and devices. The evaluation and treatment process evolves over time, and I work closely with my nurses, support staff, multi-disciplinary team, and fellow epileptologists to monitor progress and explore all potential options for each patient.
