for making a difference.
Central to my decision to move to Casper was the opportunity to help develop much needed neurology programs from the ground up. I have been very busy in the years since we came to Wyoming. I have retained my broad neurologic interests and have run a comprehensive and growing general neurology and neuro-health practice. I have established the Wyoming Epilepsy Center which provides comprehensive care to the thousands of Wyomingites affected by seizures. I have also been a leader in the development of our nationally recognized Primary stroke center. I am keenly interested in stroke systems of care tailored to our rural environment. I am an active participant in several local, state and national programs devoted to system improvement and delivery of excellent care.
