More about me

I became a neurologist because I wanted to help people cope better with their health challenges. Both of my parents were doctors, so I grew up in an environment focused on helping people deal with illnesses.

My patients can expect me to do my best to address their concerns. I want them to know I will be there for them in the long term if they have a chronic neurological illness, and I will use all resources available to me to make their lives better.

I enjoy classical music, spending time with family and friends, travelling, swimming, painting, studying history and woodworking.

I exercise regularly and eat a Mediterranean diet.

Minneapolis, MN

Responsible, caring, even-tempered, helpful.

I wanted to be a doctor.

“If your shoes have holes in them, there are people with no shoes who can use your help.” This quote is from my grandmother, passed to me by my mother.

The people here.

• Having been able to help many people live better with Parkinson's • Co-authored a book: "Navigating Life with Parkinson Disease", Oxford University Press • The HealthPartners President’s Award of Excellence (award for the Struthers Center team members) • The Paul M. Silverstein Award of Community Service in Parkinson’s Disease • Parkinson’s Disease Measure Development Work Group, Quality Measurement and Reporting Sub-Committee • American Academy of Neurology

I have a wonderful wife and our family consists of two young, smart and mischievous children and a geriatric dog. I grew up in Greece, where I attended medical school. I did my neurology training at the University of Minnesota, and my fellowships at the Mayo Clinic and the National Institutes of Health. I have lived in Minnesota since 1988.
