Personal Statement

I know how debilitating and stressful epilepsy can be to not only to those affected but also to their friends and families. I aim to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to all my epilepsy patients. I am interested in surgical management of epilepsy that cannot be controlled with medication alone. I am also excited with the many new medications and treatment options available that can help improve the lives of those suffering from inadequately controlled seizures.
