Leading Los Angeles Neurologist | Dr Lisa G Cook
Dr. Lisa G Cook is a board-certified Los Angeles neurologist committed to providing excellent neurological care to her community. As a native of Chicago, she received her undergraduate and medical school degree at the accelerated 7-year medical program at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She then went on to complete her Neurology residency and Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Neurology training involved discovery and management of complicated neurological disorders and exposure to a broad range of diagnoses from vascular disease such as stroke to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Fellowship training demanded intensive training in the interpretation of adult and pediatric routine EEGs, inpatient epilepsy monitoring, as well as the evaluation and management of adult and pediatric epilepsy patients.
She relocated to Los Angeles in 2009 and is enthusiastic in providing the utmost care to her patients. Dr. Cook is on staff at Cedars-Sinai and is actively involved in teaching residents and medical students in the Neurology stroke fellowship program. In addition, she is a part of the Cedars-Sinai stroke team and aggressively pursues stroke intervention in complex decision making treatment for patients that qualify. Her particular areas of interest include medically refractory epilepsy, migraine, stroke, and dementia. She is also currently working with NFL Concussion Settlement program and one of select MAF and BAP certified neurologists who is able to assess NFL players involved in the settlement due to concussion related injuries like CTE treatment.
