I earned my medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx. I completed internship at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, and
residency at the Neurological Institute of Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York. I then completed a fellowship in Movement Disorders at Beth Israel New York. I am now affiliated with Long Island College Hospital, where I see patients in the Movement Disorders Clinic. I am Assistant Professor (HS) in the Department of Neurology/College of Medicine SUNY Downstate Medical Center. My research interests are in the non-motor features of Parkinson's disease.
My professional memberships include the American Medical Association, the Medical Society of the State of New York, the American Academy of Neurology, the Movement Disorders Society, and the New York City Medical Volunteer Corps.
I have lived in Brooklyn Heights with my husband, James Grant, for more than 30 years, and we have raised four children here. I am a graduate of Manhattanville College and Columbia University Graduate School of Business. Before attending medical school, I pursued a career in business and finance.
It is a pleasure and a privilege to practice in this community.…
