TRAINING

I am a board certified sleep physician.  I received my undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University, my graduate degree from Johns Hopkins University/School of Public Health, and my medical degree from Chicago Medical School/Rosalind Franklin.

My passion for sleep medicine was discovered during my neurology residency at Rush University Medical Center, which led me to an ACGME certified fellowship in Sleep Medicine at Rush University Medical Center.

WORK EXPERIENCE

For almost a decade, I was an attending sleep physician at Rush University Medical Center.  As an Assistant Professor within the Departments of Neurological Sciences and Behavioral Sciences, Medical Director of the Biological Rhythms Research Laboratory, and Associate Program Director of the Fellowship in Sleep Medicine, I am considered a leading authority in the field of sleep medicine.

MY CLINICAL PERSPECTIVE

Sleep is one of the most important aspects of health and happiness!  We sleep more than a third of our lives for a reason.  My personal approach to sleep care is to develop a partnership with each patient, combining patient education, the latest medical techniques, and a behavioral approach so that we can implement the best possible sleep care for you.  Due to my extensive training and work experience evaluating the most complex sleep cases, I am comfortable and excited to tackle every sleep case, from the most “common” complaint to the most challenging cases.
