Since moving back to Rochester, my hometown, I am pleased to have joined a group of providers committed to offering comprehensive memory care to the community. We are comprised of two cognitive neurologists, a nurse practitioner, two neuropsychologists, a social worker, and several integral support staff members. I strive to apply all my clinical training from the Mayo Clinic to recognize difficult to diagnose dementia syndromes and help educate families and caregivers about diseases, treatments and prognosis. I also provide general neurology outpatient care for headache disorders, neuropathy, neuromuscular disease, movement disorders, and stroke - among other neurologic diseases. In addition, I provide inpatient neurology consultation coverage and stroke alert management on a rotational basis with my partners for Unity Hospital. I am also spearheading a collaborative effort with the Alzheimer's Association Rochester & Finger Lakes Region Chapter to provide a support group specifically for persons living with Lewy body dementias and their caregivers. I enjoy the community outreach and educational opportunities I am afforded in my role at the Memory Center at Unity. I also enjoy serving as a preceptor and mentor to the internal medicine residents on their neurology rotations at Unity Hospital, and being invited to lead some of their didactic programs and case conferences.
