As a board certified neurologist with over 30 years of clinical experience, Dr. Phillips has published in the field of neurology and participated in the clinical trials of new therapeutic agents for the treatment of neuromuscular disease. He founded the Missouri Baptist Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit and was its' medical director for 10 years. He is a member of the clinical faculty and Assistant Professor of Neurology at Barnes Hospital and Washington University where he teaches clinical neurology to the medical students. Dr. Phillips also currently serves as the Electrodiagnostic Consultant to the St. Louis Cardinals. 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. Dr. Phillips is married with three grown children. "
