    Philosophy of Care

    After completing residency at UCSF, I had the privilege of serving in the United States Navy. The majority of my service was at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego where I served as a general neurologist. At the Naval Hospital, I also participated in medical education for medical students and medicine residents from University of California San Diego, Scripps Health System, and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.

    In 2010 to 2011 I was deployed to the NATO Role III Multinational Medical Unit in Kandahar, Afghanistan where I served as the Traumatic Brain Injury team leader and neurologist for Southern Afghanistan. Military service has definitely influenced my practice and outlook, largely in that it taught me to look for practical solutions for neurological problems to try and minimize the impact of neurological diseases on a person's daily life and career. Working as an educator at so many different levels of training, taught me that education is critical at all levels, and care is improved the more everyone can participate (patients, family members, and providers). This requires the best understanding possible of the diseases for each person involved, and I try to educate (and learn from) my patients as much as I can.
