AE Clinicians Network


The Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance has created the AE Clinicians Network to connect families, patients and medical professionals with clinicians who have experience diagnosing, treating and caring for autoimmune encephalitis.  The AE Clinicians Network  provides a listing of doctors and medical professionals who have self-selected as an AE expert.  Click on a clinicians name (below) to see contact and experience information.

Clinicians who wish to be listed in the Network should use the Clinician Submission Form. Please email the AE Alliance if information related to the AE Network is incorrect or outdated.

DISCLAIMER: The AE Alliance has verified each clinician’s willingness to be listed here.  The AE Alliance can not certify the accuracy of all information provided.  Patients and families are responsible for determining the best clinical option for their needs and are encouraged to consult multiple sources in deciding on a medical team.
