Philosophy of Care

Entering medical school with a background in neuroscience, I was naturally drawn to neurology.  After rotating in pediatrics and enjoying my time spent with this patient population, it made sense to pursue a career in pediatric neurology.  I am thankful that I can do something I love and help families while doing so.

Spending most of my early years in the south, I think I bring a more laid-back, southern attitude to our department.  Despite my roots, I love living in Boston and feel it’s a great place to raise my family of three energetic little boys. When not at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, playing sports, hiking, biking or whatever other adventure we may stumble upon.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

After completing residency in pediatric neurology at Boston Children’s hospital, I stayed on as a fellow in Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology.  I joined the department as a staff physician in July 2012 and see patients in clinic in our Weymouth satellite.  I enjoy seeing patients with various neurologic disorders but have a special interest in patients with epilepsy.  In addition to working in the clinic, I also spend time supervising the epilepsy in-patient and neurology consult services.  During my training I became interested in epilepsy surgery and have been focusing my research work into looking at factors that influence the success of epilepsy surgery.
