He also enjoys skiing and keeping his non-New England friends apprised of the continuing success of the Patriots, Bruins, Red Sox and Celtics.

Our Philosophy

“Individuals with neurologic conditions require a diversity of care to meet all of their needs. We want people who come to us to feel comfortable knowing that, whatever their situation, we will be able to meet and exceed their expectations, treating them not as a patient, but as a person.”
