Georgia | Gavin and the Sparkling Synapses

Early in my training to become a neurologist, I became intrigued by myasthenia. No two myasthenic patients were exactly alike, and I found it fascinating that the same disease could take such a variety of different forms.  I was faced with the challenge of designing a unique management plan tailored for each individual patient.  I happen to like a challenge, and myasthenia soon became my greatest interest within the field of neurology.

Over my years in practice, I have had the privilege to treat a large number of patients with myasthenia.  I have gotten to know many of them quite well.  I have met their families, learned about their goals and dreams in life, and befriended them.  I listen to their struggles and frustrations, always understanding that I cannot truly know what it means to carry this weight every day.  I try to provide encouragement and support so that they do not lose hope.  What I have learned is that the best management outcomes for myasthenia occur when there is open communication and a trusting partnership between doctor and patient.

I am very excited to be supporting the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) through the MG Walk, and I am honored to be invited to serve as the Georgia MGFA medical chair.  The MGFA is the only national volunteer health agency in the United States dedicated solely to the fight against myasthenia gravis.

MGFA is committed to finding a cure for myasthenia gravis and closely related disorders, improving treatment options, and providing information and support to people with myasthenia gravis through research, education, community programs, and advocacy.
