Introduction

American and Canadian Board Certified and Epilepsy Fellowship Trained Neurologist with over 20 years of clinical experience, most as a medical director. I have served as expert consultant and witness on multiple cases revolving around neurologic, neurosurgical, neurophysiologic, psychiatric, and pharmacologic/medication issues. I have extensive clinical expertise on all types of neurologic conditions, as so many conditions cause or look like seizures or epilepsy, including brain tumors, coma, CNS infections, dementia, encephalopathy, migraines, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and other movement disorders, stroke, and traumatic brain injuries to name a few. Reviews are thorough and timely. I will only accept direct contact from attorneys. I do not perform pro-bono work. I do not perform independent medical exams.
