Following her residency, Dr. Fatimi completed a Fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology at Columbia in 2006, specializing in neuromuscular disease and electromyography.

"In medical school, I was fascinated by the diagnostic puzzles of clinical neurology. While I still enjoy diagnostic challenges, forging long-term relationships with patients has proven to be the most fulfilling aspect of my medical career. My strong relationships are based upon collaboration with my patients, their caregivers, and their other health care providers. I respect patients’ time and accommodate busy schedules by offering early morning and evening appointments. I strive to maintain open and easy lines of communication by giving my patients direct phone access and by encouraging electronic communication via ourportal."
