Dr. Paul Magda

Dr. Magda received his medical degree from the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine(1997). His postdoctoral training included an internship in internal medicine, a residency in neurology at Saint Vincent's Hospital-Manhattan (1998-2001), where he was chief resident, a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at NYPH-Weill Medical College of Cornell University (2001-2), and a fellowship in neuromuscular diseases at the Peripheral Neuropathy Center of Weill Medical College of Cornell University (2002-3). Between 2007-2010 he ran an autonomic battery laboratory, looking for small fiber and autonomic dysfunction in a variety of neuromuscular disorders. Dr. Magda is board certified in Adult Neurology, Electrodiagnostic Medicine (EMG), and Neuromuscular Medicine.
