Why I Entered Medicine 

I’m a people person from way back. I had a superb mentor, Martha Denckla MD, a leader in the field of developmental disorders of childhood. I had originally wanted to be a teacher. Most neurological problems are entities that people have to live with for a long time. I take on the role of ‘teacher’ in regards to understanding the neurologic process and how it plays out in the individual.
