Professional Interests

Dr. Daniel José Correa is Deputy Chief of Service, Neurology at Montefiore Medical Center and an attending in neurology specializing in Brain Injury Medicine and Epilepsy care. He completed a Clinical Neurophysiology fellowship in Epilepsy here at Montefiore Medical Center. His primary interest is providing clinical care for adolescents and adults with epilepsy including those in the acute and chronic stage of a brain injury leading to epilepsy. His research interests include patient education and development of tools to optimize the selection of potential candidates for epilepsy surgery, modifying the impacts of brain injury, EEG monitoring in the critically ill, and clinical research protocols. Dr. Correa is enrolled in the Albert Einstein Masters in Clinical Research Methods program.
Prior to his training at Montefiore, Dr. Correa served as the Chief of Neuroscience & Rehabilitation Center at Eisenhower Army Medical Center (EAMC) as a Major in the US Army Medical Corp. He completed Neurology residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after receiving his medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine via the F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP).

In his community outreach and volunteer efforts, Dr. Correa joined a Neurology mission to the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest, and previously volunteered as Medical Translator for a Pediatric Cardiology mission to Guayaquil, Ecuador. He hopes to continue to support local and international community efforts to bridge the Epilepsy and Neurology treatment gaps for underserved communities.
