Description of Clinical Expertise

I am currently an Attending Child Neurologist at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. I have 6 years of experience in the outpatient and inpatient setting in managing and evaluating patients with general neurologic issues and conditions. I am developing expertise in management of patients with Headaches, and Chronic Migraines, and recently completed training to perform Nerve Blocks and Botox injections. I hope to develop this niche further in the coming academic year.
I am also developing further interests in Integrative health, and will be completing a Pediatric Integrative Medicine Residency during this coming Academic Year, with the Integrative Health Group at CHOP.
