Brief Narrative:
I am a staff physician in Cognitive Neurology Unit at the BIDMC. I received a M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. I trained in neurology at the BIDMC and completed a behavioral neurology and neurorehabilitation fellowship at the BIDMC in conjunction with the memory disorders clinic at the Boston VA Medical Center.
