What medical change has impacted your specialty the most since you began practicing medicine?
Electronic medical records for patients.

It's interesting, challenging and forever changing and just because of the nature of neurology, I get to spend more time with the patients which, for me, is very rewarding.

We have family in Peoria and have found it to be a wonderful community.
