I am a pediatric neurologist at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, where I treat children with many neurological conditions including headaches, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, developmental disorders and stroke. I also have experience in pediatric neuro-critical care and neuro-hospitalist care. I love working with children and learn from my patients every day. Every child is special in their own way and I enjoy getting to know them and their families.
Apart from a complete neurological evaluation, a big part of my interaction includes exploring the family dynamics and environmental factors that may be impacting a child’s development or progression of a disease. Throughout my career, I have also held a particular interest in pediatric neuro- immunology, which encompasses diseases such as multiple sclerosis, neuro-myelitis optica and autoimmune encephalitis. The ongoing research and advances in the knowledge and management of these conditions continue to inspire my interest in this field. The innumerable functions of our brains help to create human experiences and develop human interactions, which make each of us unique.
As a pediatric neurologist, my goal is to optimize every child’s functional outcome and quality of life. Working at Memorial makes this possible because each member of our team puts the patient first. We do more than just offer medical treatment. We strive to provide a positive and wholesome experience for everyone.
