ASHWIN MALHOTRA, MD

The Neurologist

Dr. Malhotra, a top neurologist in NYC, is the founder of the Brain Health Center and the Neuro Injury Care Institute. As a life-long New Yorker, Dr. Malhotra strongly believes in helping the community and has created the Neuro Injury Care Institute in order to provide injured patients with an opportunity to easily seek an expert Neurological opinion. Dr. Malhotra’s goal is to prevent long-term disability in our communities and to help those most in need.

In addition, Dr, Malhotra is an active member of multiple medical societies (American Academy of Neurology, Peripheral Nerve Society, Brain Injury Association of New York State, American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine, American Clinical Neurophysiology Society), a strong advocate for patients with neurologic injuries and disabilities and is a faculty member at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and Capital Health Physician Network.

With an extensive research background, Dr. Malhotra has a unique approach to Neurologic Disease and is strong proponent for primary prevention of Neurologic Injury and Disease. Specific clinical interests include traumatic brain injury (TBI), dementia prevention/anti-aging brain health, traumatic neuropathy/radiculopathy, sports injuries, small fiber neuropathy/fibromyalgia, peripheral demyelinating disorders, and headache disorders.
