    Mission Statement

    We are committed to provide compassionate, cost-effective, comprehensive care to patients with neurological disorders from all segments of our community. Our approach is anchored in our firm beliefs of faith, integrity, and respect for human life.


      I'm proud of not only acquiring top-tier training in neurology, but also of the profound connections I forged with my attendings, colleagues and patients. They were not just a source of professional growth but also imparted invaluable life lessons and insights.
