Sleep Medicine
Nitin Sethi

I am a board certified neurologist with interests in Clinical Neurology, Epilepsy and Sleep Medicine. The human brain has always fascinated me from a young age and hence after finishing my residency in Internal Medicine (India), I decided to specialize in Neurology and further sub-specialize in Epilepsy and Sleep Medicine. My goal is to provide comprehensive care to patients suffering from various neurological conditions such as seizures, headaches, sleep disorders, back pain among others. Neurological conditions such as a sudden severe headache, a seizure or a stroke are frequently scary both for the patient and family. Patients seek answers to what plagues them. Early diagnosis and effective treatment is what patients seek and that is what I strive to provide.

Nitin K Sethi, M.B.B.S (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery), DNB (Diplomate of National Boards Internal Medicine India), M.D. received his medical degree from Maulana Azad Medical College, University of Delhi, India. After his residency in Internal Medicine in India, he completed his residency training in Neurology at Saint Vincent's Hospital and Medical Center and fellowship training in Clinical Neurophysiology at the Weill Cornell Medical Center both in New York. He is certified by The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). He has further subspecialty boards: ABCN General Clinical Neurophysiology Board, Advanced Examination in Central Clinical Neurophysiology with added competency in Epilepsy Monitoring and Advanced Examination in Central Clinical Neurophysiology with added competency in Intraoperative Monitoring.
