About Me

"As fascinated as I am with the intricacy of the human brain, I strive to care for my patient’s wellbeing and not merely the disease. Every day is an opportunity to heal, even in the absence of a cure."

I am a hospital-based neurologist specializing in neurocritical care. I also serve as the director for our expanding comprehensive stroke and neurocritical care program. I work closely with other physicians, surgeons and advanced practitioners at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital to ensure you receive the best neurological care possible while you are in the hospital.

Once you leave the hospital, you may receive your follow-up care in our multi-specialized neurology clinic with one of my experienced neurology colleagues at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Neurology Associates. We are proud to serve our communities complex neurological needs here at home.
