“I strive to develop a partnership with my patients and become a trusted ally in their journey with neuromuscular disease.”
Originally from Montreal, Canada, Dr. David Chad became interested in his field during medical school. “The nervous system is so endlessly fascinating he explains. “It is the seat of behavior, memory, cognition, and myriad motor functions.”
A neuromuscular specialist, Dr. Chad helps patients with problems affecting the muscles and nerves and the junctions between them. “There is a vast array of disorders that affect the way a muscle functions. My job is to diagnose what the problem is and then through treatment and therapy optimize a patient’s function as much as I can. As a neurologist, I strive to develop a partnership with my patients and become a trusted ally in their journey with neuromuscular disease.”
In his practice, Dr. Chad treats a wide range of neuromuscular disorders including peripheral neuropathies, myasthenia gravis, myositis, muscular dystrophies and ALS (amyotrophic laterals sclerosis).
Dr. Chad is a big believer in developing close, working relationships with his patients. “It is important to develop a partnership with your patient so you can better educate them about their disease – so they know when to be concerned and when to contact you. Often I am not the only one providing treatment. For example, neuromuscular diseases may come with difficulties chewing, swallowing, speaking and breathing. That’s why I often refer patients to a speech therapist, a pulmonologist, or a nutritionist for assistance, and we approach the care of our patients as a team.”
When he is not busy helping patients, Dr. Chad enjoys going to the YMCA for a swim on Sundays and then taking a walk and meeting his wife for lunch. “Those are some of my great pleasures,” he explains.
