Dr. Galina Nikolskaya, MD
I completed neurology residency at UC San Diego followed by a clinical neurophysiology fellowship at Harbor- UCLA where became skilled in electrodiagnostics including EEGs, EMG/NCS, acquired additional expertise in neuromuscular disorders, epilepsy management and detection via EEG, VNS programming, and botulinum toxin injection for treatment of various neurological conditions including chronic migraine, dystonia and spasticity. I then joined a wonderful group practice with many bright and caring colleagues where have been enjoying managing a wide spectrum of neurological diseases. In my practice additional focus is made on promoting a healthy lifestyle and integrative approach to healthcare. Quality of patient care is my highest priority and I believe in addressing the root of the problems and empowering patients with knowledge to make the best health decisions on a daily basis.
