From the Doctor:
I have been in practice in the Jacksonville area for more than 25 years. During this time I've been active in many local organizations while raising my family. My recreational interests include mountain hiking, art, fishing, and reading.
My practice philosophy is to listen to the patient's symptoms to understand their neurological condition, to teach them about their health and to improve the body and the mind in an integrated fashion. I believe it is important to discern not only what is clinically happening with the patient, but what may be going on in their lives that can have an impact on their health. I have special interests in treating the neurological diseases experienced as part of the aging process such as dementia, Alzheimer's, gait, balance and sleep disorders, Parkinson's disease and tremors.
