Syed Asad, MD
Ethos has developed a very unique clinical collaboration with Dr. Syed Asad that is of great benefit on more complex or challenging cases. He serves as a "second opinion neurologist" for patients who we feel would benefit from an independent evaluation to offer additional guidance and treatment options. He also works in conjunction with Ethos providers to develop new TBI treatment and evaluation options in an effort to continue raising the bar for outpatient TBI care. Dr. Asad is not an employee of Ethos Health Group and maintains his own private practice Universal Neurologic Care in Jacksonville, FL.
Dr. Asad serves as a consulting neurologist for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and has completed residencies at Harvard and Emory
Prior to opening his private practice in 2016 Dr. Asad was chief of neurology at Baptist
Medical Center in Jacksonville. With experience as a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserves, he knows what it takes to be an efficient leader and care-giver.
Dr. Asad is one of 10 neurologists in the state of Florida who are board certified in brain injury medicine by the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry, and TBI patients make up a majority of his practice.
He is also board certified in neurology and nuclear medicine, and maintains hospital privileges at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville.
In addition to evaluating and treating patients he also utilizes advanced diagnostic testing like VNG, EEG with ERPs, oculomotor tracking, and other technologies that can aid in the diagnosis and treatment of TBI. These tests often are positive even when MRIs or other imaging studies don’t show substantial findings.
Outside of the office, Dr. Asad enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. He also loves skiing, traveling, and the occasional outdoor adventure, ranging from climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to swimming with sharks in the Atlantic Ocean.
