Since 1989, four different team physicians have requested that he provide consultative electrodiagnostic services for both minor and major league baseball players. As a clinical electrophysiologist and biomedical engineer, Dr. Phillips is an expert on nerve conduction and electromyographic (EMG) studies for the evaluation and diagnosis of peripheral nerve disease. For over 15 years, his clinical work has focused exclusively on performing nerve conduction and EMG studies. He has personally performed nearly 50,000 of these tests during his 30 years in clinical practice, making him a recognized expert and one of the most experienced such clinicians in the country. He is board certified in Electrodiagnostic Medicine by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine and received published recognition for scoring in the top ten percent on the board exam. He is a member and fellow of the American Academy of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM), the premier specialty organization dedicated to credentialing, advocacy and education in the field of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. Dr. Phillips had the first AANEM accredited electrodiagnostic lab in Missouri, and was one of the first eight labs in the country to be granted Exemplary status. Dr. Phillips is passionate about improving the quality of electrodiagnostic studies across the country, and currently serves on the AANEM's State Liaison/Quality Committee where he actively advocates for quality and educates medical directors, peer reviewers and payers about the importance of quality EDX medicine. He has served on The Electrodiagnostic Self-Assessment Examination Committee which establishes guidelines for electrodiagnostic medical training programs to assure a high standard of training in the field, and prepares review courses and self-assessment examinations for physicians and training programs to assess their knowledge and skill. He also served on the AANEM's Electrodiagnostic Laboratory Accreditation Committee, which reviews applications from those labs across the country seeking accreditation. Dr. Phillips' training in clinical neurology and electrical/biomedical engineering, his wealth of clinical experience and his dedication to the field of electrodiagnostic medicine give him a unique level of expertise in performing and interpreting these highly complex tests. His detailed analysis of nerve conduction and EMG test results helps referring physicians and surgeons (orthopedists, neurosurgeons, hand specialists, internists and others) gather the information necessary to correctly evaluate, diagnose and treat their patients' neurological conditions for the best possible outcomes.

Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Phillips was very concerned about my condition and was very knowledgeable. He was a little quiet in the room but it looked like he was concentrating on the test. His staff is amazing. They are so sweet and helpful.

Biggest waste of time EVER! Did all the tests only to tell me to come back in 2-3 yrs when the tech is better. Couldn't find the root of my problem. Not a warm and fuzzy person whatsoever. Very abrasive and hard to talk to. Mono-toned and showed very little care for what was going on. Felt rushed...more
