|From the doctor||Shanna K. Patterson, M.D. is the Assistant Director of Electromyography (EMG) and a Board-Certified Attending Neurologist at Mt. Sinai Roosevelt Hospital. She is also Board-Certified by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. Dr. Patterson completed her residency training in Neurology and a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology, with an emphasis on EMG and neuromuscular disorders, at Columbia University. In 2013 Dr. Patterson was named by her peers to the Super Doctors Rising Stars list, published in the The New York Times Magazine.
Dr. Patterson serves on the Medical Advisory Committee for The Neuropathy Association, and also participates as a member of the Podcast Committee for the journal Neurology. She has authored chapters on EEG monitoring in the intensive care unit and neuromuscular junction disorders, as well as research articles on peripheral neuropathy.
Neurology is a tremendously dynamic field, offering a rapidly expanding range of diagnostic and therapeutic options. Aside from routine EMG and nerve conduction studies, Dr. Patterson has experience in other specialized diagnostic techniques, including the use of skin biopsies for evaluation of small fiber neuropathy, which often presents with unexplained numbness, tingling or burning.
She delivers the highest level of specialized care to her patients and emphasizes the importance of patient education in fostering doctor-patient relationships. Dr. Patterson welcomes patients with a broad variety of neurological problems, including patients with complaints related to weakness, muscle cramps, numbness, neuropathic pain, nerve injury, memory difficulty, autonomic dysfunction, back pain and headaches.
