Dr. Jamieson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Jamieson "Dara G. Jamieson, M.D. received her medical education at the University of Pennsylvania and completed her neurology residency and cerebrovascular fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. After a practice at Penn with a specialty of stroke and headache medicine she came to New York Presbyterian Hospital to join the Stroke and Headache Centers. Dr. Jamieson is one of the very few board-certified neurologists with subspecialty board certification in both vascular neurology and headache medicine. Her particular area of clinical interest is stroke in patients with chronic headache disorders such as migraines. She also has a particular interest and expertise in stroke in women, who may be at increased stroke risk because of headaches or cardiac disease. She has participated in many of the influential clinical trials in stroke prevention and treatment that have shaped the current approach to treatment of patients with cerebrovascular disease. Exemplified by her philosophy that the best way to treat a stroke is to prevent one, she works with her patients to decrease their risk of a first or a recurrent stroke. Most headaches are not due to an underlying life-threatening condition, but Dr. Jamieson's experience in stroke and critical care neurology help her to identify those rare headache patients for whom acute treatment is necessary. In treating patients with chronic debilitating headaches, she helps the patient to identify headache triggers, to adjust life-style and to use medications, both acute and preventative, which will decrease the impact of headaches on quality of life. Dr. Jamieson is also a Director of the Neurovascular Ultrasound Laboratory of the Department of Neurology, with specialty certification in intracranial and extracranial ultrasonography. She has a special interest in clinical neuroimaging and will be the President of the American Society of Neuroimaging from 2011 to 2013. "

Fair Haven, NJ |
Dr. Jamieson has absolutely changed my life for the better. After suffering from Migraines for many years, she has now helped me reduce my headaches at least 80% thanks to her knowledge and expertise. Thank You!!

Rarely a wait and I always feel she spends the amount of time with me that I need. She is thorough and her treatment has greatly improved my quality of life.

She did not hear a word I said to her. Like she is in her own world. Talked right over me to residents she had following her around during hospital rotation. Neglectful and seriously lacking in skills to diagnose.
