Current Activities, Research, Subspecialty or Professional Interests
I have been passionate about teaching for many years, demonstrating this in my roles as Princeton review instructor, undergraduate and medical school tutor, chief resident and chief fellow. I am currently very involved with medical students and residents, being a mentor for medical students and core faculty for the neurology residents, as well as coordinating the neurology rotations. I am now transitioning to become the program director for the Mercy Health St. Mary's Neurology residency. I am excited to help residents achieve their goals and provide a comprehensive neurology education.
I am also currently the Medical Director of the Sleep Center at Mercy Health St. Mary's and work as a neuro-hospitalist. I have clinical interests in Sleep disorders related to neurology, aka "neurosomnology," especially Parasomnias, Narcolepsy, Parkinson's and MS in sleep. I have done some research with REM sleep behavior disorder. I enjoy giving lectures and conferences on sleep disorders.
Why I chose to practice in Grand Rapids...
The culture, community and support is the main reason I chose to practice at Mercy Health Saint Mary's in Grand Rapids. This is a phenomenal city, being a big city with a small town feel. The patients are kind, the community is supportive and the people at Mercy Health are pleasurable to work with. In addition, much of my wife's family is in the west Michigan area.
