Industry: Health Care
A member of the American Academy of Neurology, Dr. Patrick Edmund Matoole is among the more than 24,000 physicians who share in the prestigious organization’s mission to “promote the highest quality patient-centered neurologic care.” His interest in the field was piqued while he was in medical school, when most students are sorting out where they belong in medicine. As he comes from a line of physicians who were also involved in neurology, the choice seemed natural. Thus, in 1996, Dr. Matoole earned a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Nebraska, and four years later completed a residency in neurology at Creighton University. He now celebrates his 10th year as a physician and neurologist for JWM Neurology, P.C., where he oversees hospital coverage for patients, treats individuals with neurological disorders, and coordinates with the patient care committee.
The field of neurology is vast, as it is the component of medicine that deals with the anatomy, functions, and disorders of nerves and the nervous system. Within this broad field, Dr. Matoole possesses a depth of knowledge in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, stroke, and head injuries. In 2001, he completed a fellowship in electroencephalography and electromyography from the Indiana University School of Medicine. An electroencephalogram, also referred to as EEG, is a test that measures brain electrical activity, mostly used to obtain information that is key to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with epilepsy.
Having entered into the medical profession through the inspiration of his father, a physician, Dr. Matoole ensures that his knowledge remains current by holding memberships to several organizations, including the Indianapolis Medical Society, the Indiana State Medical Association, the American Medical Association, and AANEM. He hopes to be remembered by his peers as someone who is knowledgeable and compassionate. Crediting his successful career to his hard work and dedication, he aspires in the future to expand his current practice. When he is not busy researching new advancements in his field, he enjoys walking, swimming, and traveling. Continue reading
