We are proud to have Dr. Asad on our brain injury team as a part of our TeleTBI program. He serves as a consulting neurologist for the Jacksonville Jaguars and has completed residencies at Harvard and Emory University. 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 8 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, 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.
