Care Philosophy

I've been a practicing neurologist for 38 years, and I've watched tremendous advances, particularly in the field of epileptology. Among the advances that have been so important are neuromodulatory tools to treat epilepsy. The first of these is the vagus nerve stimulator, and this is a pacemaker device that can be implanted -
much the way a cardic pacemaker is - and approximately two thirds of patients will have a 50 percent reduction in their seizures. Nothing is more satisfying than being able to take a person who can't drive, who's life is being narrowed by a burden of having poorly controlled seizures, and turning that person's life around.

He actually told me once, "I am not God I cannot predict the future. The truth is he played God with my life and made choices for me without consulting me. The devil in a white jacket. I woulnd't recomend him to my worst enemy, the fact that he his on TV advertising for the hosptial is just scary. Perhaps he should donate his money to MS.
