Personal Statement

I am thrilled to be a member of the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medical Center.  I have been in practice for over twenty years, spending a steadily increasing proportion of my time in the ambulatory setting.   As a general neurologist, I care for patients with common neurological problems.  I have a special interest in the management and treatment of patients with headaches and migraines, neck and back pain, pinched nerves, dizziness and vertigo as well as diagnostic challenges.  My philosophy is to develop a therapeutic alliance with my patients, partnering with them in their plan of care and treatment. Due to my background in intensive care neurology, I bring a critical eye to out-patient neurology.
