Integrated Neurology is the practice of Madhureeta Achari, MD, a Houston-based Neurologist caring for patients with neurologic problems.
Dr. Achari wasn’t born in Texas, but she got here as soon as she could, thank her lucky stars. She received her BA in Biochemistry from Rice University and then earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art History with a focus in filmmaking. The decision to choose medical school over film school was based on which profession allowed her to help people the most.
She attended UT-McGovern Medical School and received her Doctor of Medicine (MD) in 1992. Her internship was also served at McGovern Medical school in internal medicine, followed by a residency in neurology. Dr. Achari completed her fellowship in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology at the same institution. She is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and maintains certification via periodic re-qualifications.
Having had excellent instruction in neuroimaging during her residency and fellowship, Dr. Achari trained extensively in neuroimaging over the course of her practice and received board certification by the United Council of Neurological Specialties in Neuroimaging. Her father, Dr. Amrit Achari, who created the first neurophysiology laboratory at St. Luke’s Hospital in the early 1970s and a noted neuromuscular specialist, supervised her additional training in electrodiagnostic studies (EMG/NCV). As the Consulting Neurologist at TIRR for a decade, she developed expertise in the diagnosis and management of severe and mild traumatic brain injury. She was also the neurologist for the liver transplantation services at Hermann and St. Luke’s Hospitals.
She began her private practice in 1997. She practices general neurology and is skilled in the diagnosis and management of a wide range of neurological disorders. She integrates clinical findings with neuroimaging, neurophysiology, and other studies to form an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan. Over the years, Dr. Achari has developed the specialty of Nutritional Neurology which uses scientifically validated laboratory testing to assess cellular micronutrient content and needs.
Her practice is a scientific, evidence-based holistic approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neurological issues.
