My training in epileptology is based at UCLA and UCSD. I am board certified in Neurology and Neurophysiology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I am the Associate Medical Director of the South Texas Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, a Level IV epilepsy center accredited by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, based at University Hospital. In addition, I serve as the Medical Director for the Neurodiagnostic Center. Under my direction, our scope and capacity has doubled and our center is in the 75 percentile nationally for surgical epilepsy centers in cases. I am an active clinician and have five busy half day clinics weekly at the MARC providing care and consultation for epilepsy patients referred locally and nationally. I serve the community by my activities with the Epilepsy Foundation providing care for indigent epilepsy patients in a monthly clinic. I am active as a teacher and leader Director for the Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship, providing mentorship, supervision, teaching of EEG and epilepsy and evaluation for three fellows. I am an active component of the residency program, working as not only a mentor for residents, but as an attending on ward/consult service, performing evaluation of clinical skills of residents and as a member of the Residency Review Committee for the ACGME site visit. Moreover, I have been part of the essential cohesion that allows a department to work smoothly in being a flexible member of the team outside of my other responsibilities. Such activities across the years have included being a member of the acute stroke team, participating in Saturday clinics at University Health System to decompress the wait times for general neurology clinics for Carelink patients, overbooking consults on an urgent basis into my clinics despite a full clinical load and providing coverage for colleagues for inpatient, outpatient and administrative duties.
