Dr. Mike Erkkinen is a neurologist who cares for adults experiencing cognitive and behavioral symptoms, often as a result of neurogenerative diseases or the aging process. He is particularly interested in how his patients' symptoms, including those involving speech or creative expression, relate to alterations in nervous system function.

Erkkinen earned his medical degree from the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. He completed a residency in neurology through a Harvard Medical School program at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital. He completed a fellowship in cognitive and behavioral neurology at UCSF.

Erkkinen believes that all of life's cherished experiences are filtered, colored, shaped and possibly even created by precisely choreographed electrochemical workings of the brain. He feels honored to care for patients who have experienced having the most deeply held part of themselves touched by neurologic illness.
