After completing medical school at the MS Hershey College of Medicine of Penn State University and graduating with honors, I then completed neurology training, which was composed of one year of internal medicine and 3 years of neurology after which I completed a year of subspecialty training in stroke and cerebral metabolism especially directed at studying and understanding cerebral function with tests of blood flow and brain energy utilization with PET scanning, at that time a very new technology. I completed this training over 5 years at the University of Pennsylvania where I remain on the clinical staff. I have been engaged in the private practice of Neurology since 1983 through the present where my practice has strived to understand, diagnose and treat the overall presentation of neurological problems in general without the sometimes blinding subspecialty approach that is now prevalent in neurology at academic centers.
I am honored to have been selected to be Chief of the Neurology Division of the Mainline Health System and Paoli Hospital for more than 15 years and for a somewhat shorter period of time have had the opportunity to grow the local expertise of our health system in stroke care as Medical Director of the Stroke Program at Main Line Health and locally at Paoli Hospital. Good fortune and the confidence of my colleagues has provided me the honor of being chosen to be a Best Doctor in the USA for more than the past decade and to be chosen as a Best Doctor in Philadelphia and on the Main Line over a similar period. I have been fortunate and grateful to enjoy the success I have experienced, but none of that would have been possible without the tolerance and support of my family and especially my wife, and the professionalism of my staff with whom I have been fortunate to work.
