About Dr. Segil
Santa Monica, CA
I completed an ACGME accredited Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship through UCLA’s Neurology Department and was among the first group of fellows to be trained at their new Ronald Reagan Westwood Medical Center in 2008. Prior to UCLA I completed an Adult Neurology Residency at USC’s Keck School of Medicine. All of my Neurology training has been completed locally so I have excellent working relationships with both academic centers. My board certification in Neurology is by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
I see hospital patients exclusively at Providence St Johns Health Center. I am practicing general neurology and have sub-specialty training in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology. I am contracted with Medicare and most PPO insurance plans.
I worked full time for the UCLA Department of Neurology before entering private practice and remain part of UCLA’s Neurology Department as an unpaid guest faculty member. I was invited to teach the residents after I was awarded their Fellow Teaching Award in 2009. At Santa Monica-UCLA I have been part of an EEG reading panel. I also enjoy volunteering at the Venice Family Clinic which I have done since I was a UCLA fellow in 2008.
I grew up locally, after moving to Santa Monica from South Africa in the 1st grade. I went to Franklin, Lincoln and then graduated from Santa Monica High School. I completed an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and then attended an osteopathic medical school in southern California. I live in Santa Monica with my wife and three children who attend Santa Monica public schools.
Though I am a formally trained Neurologist who has completed post-graduate training at both UCLA and USC, my osteopathic foundations ensure I will treat you as a whole person. I welcome the opportunity to participate in your care and hope I am able to be helpful to both you and your referring physician.
