About Me

Here’s what attracted me most to neurology: the amazing brain. I’m fascinated by what the brain does to the rest of the body and the influence a healthy brain has in somebody’s life.

I am a board certified neurologist with subspecialty training in Alzheimer's disease and dementia. I evaluate patients with neurological conditions, and I specialize in the field of dementia.

I believe that educating patients and families about their conditions can help them manage neurological disease the best way they can. When I educate patients about their disease, they become an active part of treatment, follow-up and prevention. They are able to monitor their course and respond to their treatment plan.

As a physician, I’m responsible for the patient and want him or her to be aware of the diagnosis and treatment plan. I want to help them make informed decisions about their health.

    Phenomenal. She knows her stuff neuropsychiatrist. I learned a LOT from her. She knew what history tests & studies to obtain to nail down the underlying cause for my cognitive impairment. Makes recommendations and discusses options, but lets me decide. I am a retired psychiatrist, so she lets me research the options. By far, she is undoubtedly one of the finest neuropsychiatrists in the business. I'm grateful to have her on my "team".
