I am a Movement Disorders Neurologist and see patients at the Morreene Rd Clinic and at the Durham VA Medical Center.
Among the types of movement disorders patients that I see in clinic are individuals who have Parkinson's disease, Essential Tremor, tics, chorea, dystonia, Huntington's disease, tardive movement disorders and Wilson's disease. I use botulinum toxin injections to treat selected patients afflicted with dystonia, tremors, and tics. I manage patients who have undergone deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, Essential Tremor,and dystonia. In addition to managing patients who have movement disorders, I participate in a variety of clinical trials focussed on improving the management and treatment of Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and dystonia.

Key words: movement disorders, Parkinson's disease, tremors, tics, chorea, dystonia, botulinum toxin injections.
