Neal S. Parikh, MD, MS, is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Born in New York City, he lived in the South and Midwest before returning to the East Coast for higher education. After receiving a B.A. from Yale College, he received his M.D. from Weill Cornell Medical College with induction into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. He then completed an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Adult Neurology at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine. In his last year, he served as Chief Resident. This was followed by a two-year fellowship in neuro-epidemiology and vascular neurology at The Neurological Institute at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. His training included neurosonology. During this fellowship, he received an M.S. in epidemiology from the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health.
Dr. Parikh's clinical expertise is in vascular neurology. He provides comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients with stroke, transient ischemic attack, and other vascular neurology conditions. His research interests include stroke prevention and epidemiology, with a focus on understanding the complex interplay between medical conditions and stroke. As an example, he has published several studies demonstrating a link between liver conditions and stroke. Other research topics include stroke systems of care, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, and smoking cessation in patients with cerebrovascular disease. His work has been published in leading journals such as JAMA Neurology, Neurology, and Stroke. His neuro-epidemiology training program fellowship was funded by an NIH T32 training grant. He serves on the editorial board of Stroke.
