Division of Neurology & Behavioral Health

Jinny Tavee, MD, Division Chief

What do we do? The Division of Neurology and Behavioral Health at National Jewish Health encompasses a multidisciplinary team whose aim is to diagnose and treat complex neuromuscular diseases and related metabolic and respiratory disorders, as well as neuropsychological disorders. 

Our goal is to help patients manage their diseases and disorders so they can lead full and active lives. We recognize that individuals with chronic diseases do better if they have the knowledge and coping skills to manage their own conditions.

Why National Jewish Health? At National Jewish Health, our neurologists, neuropsychologists and advanced practice providers conduct and participate in research to further the understanding and treatments of neurologic and neuropsychological conditions.
