After graduating from medical school under a scholarship from the United States Air Force, I had the privilege of training under outstanding neurologists and neuromuscular specialists both in the Air Force at Wilford Hall Medical Center and at the University of California at San Francisco. My clinical interests have been influenced by the needs of the population of east Tennessee, which has led to a large population of patients with myasthenia gravis and our participation in myasthenia gravis research at UTMCK.

Clinical Focus:
Neuromuscular Disorders, electrodiagnostic Medicine- with specialty concentration in minimally-invasive surgical procedures in pain medicine, myasthenia gravis, hereditary neuropathies
