Summary

  • I am a board-certified neurologist and specialize in treatment of patients with concussion, migraine, ADHD, insomnia, and memory loss. We have a very effective 12-week brain fitness program that has been remarkably effective for our patients.
    More than 80% of our patients improve their memory, become calmer, sleep better, and recover from their concussion or brain-related symptoms.
