Dr. Breta Boots specializes in general neurology with emphasis in epilepsy and neuromuscular disorders. She provides care for people who are experiencing dysfunction of the nervous system, including conditions such as neuropathy, seizures, multiple sclerosis, headache, stroke, post-concussive syndromes and many others. She takes great care to get to know her patients and the multi-faceted issues they face, and she is encouraged by the new treatments and technologies that are becoming available to treat many of the common and not-so-common disorders.
She graduated magna cum laude and received her doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, followed by an internal medicine internship at Lankenau Medical Center in Pennsylvania. She completed her neurology residency at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, MA, where she focused on electromyography (EMG) and electroencephalography (EEG). She is board certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
Breta served as clinical co-chief resident during her neurology training, and is a faculty member in the University of Massachusetts Department of Neurology. She enjoys teaching neurology residents and medical students, while also continuing to advance her own knowledge in the complexities of the nervous system. She is a member of the Massachusetts Neurological Association, Massachusetts Medical Society, Worcester District Medical Society and the American Academy of Neurology.
When she has free time, Breta enjoys getting outdoors to bike, swim and kayak, in addition to reading and spending time with her husband and family, including two very special rescue dogs.
