Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Calakos "I specialize in the care of patients with movement disorders such as Parkinsons disease dystonia and tremors and Im an associate professor in the department of neurology. I chose to become a physician scientist because I love both the art and the science of medicine. In the clinic I enjoy getting to know each person and developing a personalized care plan based on his or her unique needs. In the lab I look for answers to problems my patients face. Outside of work I enjoy any activity that is outdoors."
