Personal Statement

I am a board certified neurologist with interests in Clinical Neurology, Epilepsy, Concussion and Traumatic brain injuries and Sleep Medicine. The human brain has always fascinated me from a young age and hence after finishing my residency in Internal Medicine in India, I decided to specialize in Neurology and further sub-specialize in Epilepsy, Clinical Neurophysiology as well as Sleep Medicine. My goal is to provide comprehensive care to patients suffering from various neurological conditions such as seizures, headaches, sleep disorders, back pain, migraines, concussions, traumatic brain injuries 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 and family seek and that is what I strive to provide.
