As a pediatric neurologist, I treat children and adolescents with concussions and post-concussion headaches. I work with the Concussion and Post-Traumatic Headache Team, which collaborates with specialists from various fields. These include rehabilitation and physical medicine; sports medicine; physical, occupational and speech therapy; vestibular rehabilitation and other specialties. Our team collaborates and provides a tailored recovery plan for each patient.
In my research, I’m exploring the classification and treatment of headaches after concussions and mild traumatic brain injuries. I’m also investigating the importance of low wait times for patients who may have a concussion.
My philosophy of care is to build a solid foundation that is stretched and shaped to fit the patient's needs.
During my free time, I enjoy fishing, hiking and biking.
