My Background:

I am a clinical neurologist and have dedicated my career to caring for persons with MS. I also trained in immunology, and studied immune changes that occur in persons with MS.

  • I graduated from Hobart College in Geneva, NY and obtained my medical degree from The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. I completed a medical internship and a neurology residency at Cornell University School of Medicine and then did a two-year fellowship in cellular immunology, also at Cornell, Two years were spent in the Public Health service at the National Institutes of Health doing virology research.

  • Thereafter I joined the faculty at Cornell, doing both MS related clinical care and directing a US government funded research laboratory on the immunology of MS.

  • In 1979 I left the east coast to travel to the land of 10,000 lakes and joined the faculty at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine where I was a professor of neurology and ran a large clinic devoted to the care of persons with MS. I again established and directed an immunology laboratory studying disease mechanisms in MS.

  • I left academic medicine in 2000 and went into private practice with Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology to allow me to offer more comprehensive care to my patients. There I further expanded my clinic devoted to the care of persons with MS. I continued to participate in clinical trials and to publish on MS-related clinical care and treatment options.

  • I am now retired from clinical care, but have not lost my wish to help persons with MS. Thus, I write this blog, and hope it will be of value to you.
