Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests lie in difficult to treat epilepsies. These can be treated with either newer medications ( through drug trials), ketogenic diet, epilepsy surgery
I am here to serve those that are suffering. This philosophy should be applicable across all barriers- whether they are geographic, economic, cultural etc. It is very important to listen to another point of view in coming to a solution. Thus whenever I hear reasons for which a patient might be dis satisfied, I try to pinpoint the root cause for the same and address it. I believe in being the change that I want to see in this world. I like to lead by example. I feel that by being the best physician that I can be will lead to better care for my patients.
I enjoy reading, cooking whole foods and exercising.
I am very interested in bringing specialty health care to the rural and underserved populations and am personally committed to increasing telemedicine presence in the state
I am the co chair of Childrens Hour at the American Epilepsy Society ( 2018-2020). I have spoken at the legislature in Iowa ( I was in Iowa till August 2016) representing the University of Iowa to advice about the current research on medical marijuana. I have been site PI on 3 trials involving Epidiolex. I have spoken on the topic at local venues and was also an invited speaker to the Hemispherotomy conference in July 2016 in CO.
