Professional Summary:

I am a Movement Disorder neurologist caring for patients with involuntary movements including Parkinson‘s disease, tremor disorders and dystonia. Besides managing patients with medications and counseling, I also perform botulinum toxin (Botox) injections to treat dystonia, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, spasticity and certain types of tremors and headaches. As a member of UB‘s Comprehensive Movement Disorder Center, I also refer appropriate patients for deep brain stimulation (DBS). I am a member of the Parkinson Study Group, which is an international organization of clinical research centers offering opportunities for patients to enroll in cutting edge research studies.

My personal research has focused mostly on performing clinical trials in hot flashes, chemotherapy-induced nausea, hyperemesis gravidarum, Parkinson‘s disease, and concussion. My research results have been featured in Reader‘s Digest, Time Magazine, and on CBS Evening News.
