Hello, and welcome to my Web page! My name is William Neil, I am a vascular neurologist, and I live in San Diego.
I grew up in Southern California in the San Fernando Valley. I am married and have two little boys who love playing Legos and puzzles with me. I became interested in becoming a neurologist as I am fascinated by the human brain and the remarkable things it can do. I want to do everything in my power to restore brain health and function for those who need my help.
As a vascular neurologist I have a special interest in treating those who have suffered from a stroke. I help to organize care of stroke patients here in San Diego as well as throughout Southern California. In order to increase recognition of stroke, I would like to tell everyone reading this to remember to B.E.F.A.S.T. ! If you or anyone near you has sudden difficulty with: Eyes, Balance, Face, Arm, or Speech, Time to call 911! Get to the nearest hospital immediately, as these may be signs of a stroke.
I thrive by surfing every weekend. My favorite spots are Mission Beach and Tourmaline Beach. I also like to work on old cars, and have a 1965 Chevy Malibu.
