Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
With more than 20 years of experience, my neurology expertise is rooted in passion. Why am I so enthralled by this field? When we understand how and why the brain tells the body to function the way it does, we can actually train it to maximize that performance on and off the field, in and out of the office and throughout the entire course of our lives.
The principals I apply to the field of Sports Neurology include injury treatment and prevention aspects, as well as techniques to enhance neurological sports performance in the absence of injury. The key is to study and truly understand neurological function across the entire lifespan. Athletic, academic and professional performance can all be improved by consistently monitoring aspects of neurological function and then training, modifying and modulating the brain to maximize that function. In a nutshell, we're teaching the brain to behave optimally, using it as the powerful muscle that it is designed to be. Using state-of-the-art techniques and technologies and applying them to new and exciting ways of assessing and maximizing neurologic performance are how we do it.
No one should have to live a life experiencing chronic pain with no amount of relief. If you are experiencing pain and wish to learn more about neurological treatments, it is highly advisable that you seek the help of a neurologist to determine which treatment is right for you. Sometimes the right neurological treatment can help prevent the need for surgery, depending on the neurological condition. I am a neurologist who is Board Certified by the Board of American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
No malpractice history found for California.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect non-disciplinary board actions?
Healthgrades collects non-disciplinary board actions from all 50 U.S. states.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

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.
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.
