Care Philosophy

I grew up in a small town in central Connecticut and attended college at William and Mary in Virginia. I returned to Connecticut for an MD and a PhD in Neuroscience. Finally I came to Duke where I completed my medicine internship neurology residency neuromuscular fellowship and masters degree in clinical research science. I am currently an associate professor of medicine/neurology at Duke director of the Duke ALS Clinic and chief of neurology at the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center. I have won awards for teaching and for patient care including: best neurology teacher at Duke; Health Care Hero; Strength Hope and Caring Award; Americas Best Doctors; the American Academy of Neurology's Kenneth M. Viste Jr. MD Patient Advocate of the Year Award and the ALS Association's Rasmussen Award for ALS Patient Advocate of the Year. I have received research grants participated in clinical trials and published more than 70 articles. I am also a past chair of the North American ALS Research Group and leader of the international ALSUntangled program which utilizes social networking to investigate alternative and off-label treatment options for patients with ALS. I live in Durham with Shelly my wife and two mischievous kittens.

Patient Comments (1)
in Wilmington, NC |
Everything that Dr Bedlack and his team at the ALS Clinic have tried on me has made my life easier. Having a chronic neurological illness is life changing, having doctors and therapists on the cutting edge of medicine and technology is a great thing. I am lucky to have a non life-threatening form of motor-neuron disease, but I can walk and talk due to the interventions of Dr Bedlack and his team.
