The PANDAS/PANS Institute

The purpose of this site is to promote the development of a PANDAS/PANS Institute aimed at clinical research, basic research and clinical care/treatment of this important and common disorder. After treating over 2000 patients suffering form PANDAS/PANS, it has become apparent that there needs to be more research.

As a physician and researcher, I have over 20 years in academic and hospital-based practice in the NYC area. In order to better concentrate on treating PANDAS/PANS patients, several years ago I opened a full-time private practice. Sometimes, you've just got to do things yourself. I am committed to providing each patient with an exceptional level of care and attention, as every child is precious and deserving of every chance to shine according to their abilities. Personalized treatments and care are often the only way to help those severely affected by PANDAS/PANS.

As a parent, you may be nervous. This is understandable; this is your child's brain we are talking about here. I will make every effort to put you at ease with a thorough explanation of the diagnosis and treatment plan. Appointments are scheduled so that there is plenty of time for questions. I believe that a treatment is optimally effective only when parent(s) and (where possible) patient understand why the treatment is being given and what the alternatives to not treating are. We are conveniently located in Ramsey, NJ, directly across from the Interstate Shopping Center. We offer extended hours on weekdays, offer Saturday hours, and accept same-day appointments (based on availability).

Although I am a general child neurologist, I have special interest and expertise in PANDAS/PANS. 

Contact us for an appointment. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to help your child.
