20 years caring for patients; teaching medical students, residents and fellows; lecturing colleagues; conducting research; and have authored over 50 medical articles and book chapters.
In addition to seeing patients with neuromuscular disorders, I have a focus on EDS, POTS, and other dysautonomias. I currently follow over 2,500 patients with EDS and POTS. I diagnose and manage their EDS, POTS, migraines, MCAS, and neuropathies. I am delighted to have been one of many excellent co-authors of the book Disjointed, a guide for patients wishing to learn about EDS, hypermobility, and related disorders.
Despite being small, the Center for Complex Neurology, EDS & POTS, provides an array of state-of-the-art testing such as nerve conduction studies, EMG, EEG, autonomic testing, nerve/muscle biopsies, and small fiber neuropathy testing.
We also partner with similar independent practices that can assist us in providing the care our patients need. This includes physical therapists, orthotists, allergists, orthopedists, gastroenterologists, immunologists, cardiologists, geneticists, and dentists knowledgeable about EDS and its complications.
“I pledge my commitment to do all I can to help assist my patients in their complex health care journey. We work together to improve their functioning and quality of life. My priority is focusing on diagnosing and treating patients with Neurodegenerative Disorders and conditions for which I have developed great expertise through years of study, practice, and research. Conditions for which similar degrees of expertise is possessed by only a small number of specialists in the Valley.”
“In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife Fran, trying a new Scotch, and watching the antics of my pet tortoise Gotleib.”
