William Cheshire Jr., MD, MA

Neurology Jacksonville, FL

Professor of Neurology Mayo Clinic


  • I work with a world-class team of colleagues at Mayo Clinic who are dedicated to caring for patients and advancing medical science. My clinical practice is tertiary, outpatient, and highly collaborative, focusing on the diagnosis and evaluation of disorders of the autonomic nervous system. I am passionate about discovery, whether that be finding solutions for patients with complex problems, new insights in neuroscience, or connections between neuroscience and complementary disciplines that illuminate our understanding what it means to be human.
