I completed my medical school and residency training at UT Houston School of Medicine and am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I completed one year of fellowship training at Baylor College of Medicine in Neuromuscular Diseases, with specialized training in treatment of nerve and muscle diseases, muscle and nerve biopsy and EMG/NCS.
I treat all neurological conditions for patients over the age of 15,.
I believe in a holistic approach to the practice of medicine. With every patient I try to incorporate aspects of wellness such as nutrition, nutraceuticals, exercise, weight loss, and sleep optimization. Spiritual wellness and faith have been key in my life.
As an athlete, I have a special interest in the treatment of sports related neurological injuries such as concussion, neck/back strain and nerve injuries. I want to get athletes back in the game as soon as possible, but in a safe and healthy manner.
As part of my Christian faith, I have a love for serving people of the world with limited access to medical care. I have traveled to Tanzania, Thailand, Honduras, Peru, and Paraguay as part of my medical missions work. I serve as Healthcare Director for Twelve21Global.
