People with epilepsy are faced with making complicated decisions about their healthcare everyday. I am dedicated to educating every individual about the important latest medical and surgical advancements available to them. It is my role to insure patients are fully informed about the potential impact these therapies may have on their overall physical and mental well-being, and to optimize their treatment plans. As an epileptologist, I specialize in the treatment of seizures.
