Kerri LaRovere | Publications

I was raised to be an honest person, and treat everyone with respect and dignity. I bring this philosophy to every child and family I encounter. I am an outstanding listener and truly care about my patients and their families.

I grew up with several close family members who had epilepsy, and I learned first hand how to care for children with seizures. Throughout medical school, I was always drawn to learning about anatomy of the brain, and the effects of illness on the brain. Shortly after finishing residency, a severe neurologic illness affected my mother-in-law, and this solidified my lifelong desire to learn about and care for individuals with neurological conditions.
