As a board-certified neurologist (certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology), focused on the field of Sports Neurology, my passion is studying and understanding how the brain and nervous system work together to make people perform. In athletics, education and even job performance, our brains are working non-stop, sending signals to our bodies that compel them to act in very specific ways. If you are looking for assistance in evaluation and management in areas of Sports Neurology, pain management, peak performance, expert witness/med-legal services, lectures/public speaking, my practice and professional expertise may be just right for you.
For the past 20 years, I have made the field of Sports Neurology my life's work. I am actively engaged in researching and developing innovative and effective treatments and technologies that help people recognize symptoms of a neurological injury sooner, so that the work of treating them can happen faster, and with less potential for permanent damage.
I serve as a neurological medical consultant to local professional sports organizations such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings and Los Angeles Sparks. I also assist local college and numerous high schools and youth sports/club athletic teams in this capacity. Living and breathing this field of medicine means striving to educate every athletic population I can about the need for serious attention to neurological injury risks in players at every level of the game.
My practice is healthy, busy, specialized, varied and unique. I'm thrilled that it found me. And I'm honored to share it with you.
