Dr. Deeb's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Deeb "Dr. Wissam Deeb joined the Movement Disorders division of the neurology department as an Assistant Professor in July 2017. He sees patients with a variety of movement disorders and also has an interest in clinical research focusing on dystonia (with a funded study through the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation) and Tourette syndrome (multiple internal studies at UF). Training at one of the premiere DBS centers in the USA, he acquired the skills needed for DBS intraoperative recording and postoperative programming. Dr. Wissam Deeb is originally from Lebanon, where he obtained his medical degree at the University of Balamand. Seeking a more expansive training environment, Dr. Deeb started his internship and neurology residency at the University of Massachusetts in 2011. During his training, Dr. Deeb developed an interest in the management of patients with movement disorders (such as Parkinson's disease, tics, dystonia). He pursued two years of fellowship in movement disorders at the University of Florida, where, in addition to developing solid clinical skills, he appreciated the value of patient centered care and understood Dr. Okun's axiom "At our center, the patient is the Sun and the providers orbit around him/her"."
