As neurologists, our physicians are highly trained to treat disorders of the nervous system, which include diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Some common problems that neurologists diagnose and treat are strokes, epilepsy (seizures), headaches, dementias (Alzheimer's disease), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and various forms of pain. Neurologists may serve as consultants to other physicians and may provide long-term care to patients with chronic neurological disorders.
Our medical staff includes the following physicians:

He received fellowship training in epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology at Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC. He also completed a sleep medicine fellowship at Norwalk Hospital, Connecticut.
As part of his fellowship training in clinical neurophysiology/epilepsy, he focused on intraoperative and epilepsy monitoring; EEG and EMG. As a sleep specialist, he diagnoses and treats sleep related disorders such as daytime sleepiness (hypersomnolence), insomnia, narcolepsy, obstructive, central, and complex sleep apnea, etc.
Dr. Okunola is board-certified in both adult neurology and clinical neurophysiology. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Neurology.
Dr. Alias completed his medical school training at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2008 as part of an accelerated medical program with his undergraduate university. Following this, he trained at the University of Connecticut for both a medical internship as well as a residency in Neurology. In his final year of training, he became a chief resident. He became board certified in Neurology in 2012. He completed a fellowship in Movement Disorders at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, MA. While in fellowship, Dr. Alias received specialized training in programming of deep brain stimulators as well as administration of botulinum toxin for dystonia. Dr. Alias had been in practice in Pennsylvania for two years prior to returning to northern New Jersey, where he had grown up.
Dr. Alias has presented his research in Parkinson’s disease, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, and dystonia in both national and international meetings, as well as published a study on thrombolysis in stroke patients. He treats patients for a wide range of neurologic conditions, including, but not limited to, Parkinson’s disease, tremors, restless leg syndrome, stroke, migraines, cognitive loss/dementia,and seizures.
