Stroke usually happens suddenly, and can dramatically affect a person’s life in many ways. As a Vascular Neurologist, caring for patients who have suffered from a stroke, TIA, or are at risk of having a stroke in the future is both challenging and rewarding. From regional Emergency Departments via Telestroke, to the inpatient wards of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at Maine Medical Center, to the outpatient clinic of Maine Medical Partners Neurology, I am fortunate to be able to provide stroke care across the continuum for my neighbors here in Maine. This perspective is truly rewarding, because I will often meet patients when they feel at their very worst, but in many cases, they can recover significantly over time. Often, patients and families want to know what happened, and I can help to explain what caused the stroke or TIA, and what steps can be taken to prevent such an event from happening again. I enjoy partnering with my patients in joint decision making regarding stroke prevention, and discussing ways to improve quality of life after a stroke. My hope is that my patients will return to tell me how much they are enjoying doing what they love; if they are like me, that would include spending time with family, experiencing the beauty of the outdoors, and partaking in the many activities and culinary delights that Maine has to offer.
