Neuromuscular Pathology

Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“Neuromuscular pathology can be a powerful tool to aid clinicians with diagnosing complicated neuromuscular disorders. I enjoy practicing neuromuscular medicine, interpreting nerve and muscle pathology and find that the history, clinical exam and prior workup are essential pieces of the puzzle when working up neuromuscular diseases. We strive to obtain pertinent clinical information to help us achieve a more tailored and specific diagnosis when interpreting nerve and muscle pathology. I am happy to discuss neuromuscular patient cases before and or after muscle and nerve biopsies.”
