Michael Gibbs, M.D.
Dr. Gibbs joined Neurology Associates after completing his fellowship training at UCLA Medical Center. He is Board Certified in Neurology and enjoys seeing patients with both common and rare neurologic conditions of all types. He spent two additional years learning to treat complex seizure disorders and is adept at evaluating patients for epilepsy surgery.

Dr. Gibbs’ favorite aspect of medicine is teaching patients about their illness and empowering them to become active participants in their recovery. He is firmly devoted to ‘patient-centered care’ and the idea that each patient is an individual with a unique way of navigating the medical system and coping with illness.
