Provider Bio down arrow

As a neurologist and clinical neurophysiologist, Dr. Arenson treats a variety of disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system. They include epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, strokes, seizures, headaches, Parkinson’s disease, and carpal tunnel syndrome. “I’m especially interested in treating patients with epilepsy and multiple sclerosis,” she explains.

“I try to make it possible for the patients to be as involved as they can be in their own care. Family members might also participate. I give the patient the information they need, provide advice and then we come to a final decision together,” she says. “Often there are benefits and trade-offs to balance. This approach can improve communication and teamwork between us.”

Dr. Arenson and her son enjoy traveling. When she gets time to herself, she likes to pick up a good book or go hiking.

Dr. Arenson is board certified in both neurology and clinical neurophysiology. She earned her medical degree at Rush University Medical Center – Rush Medical College in Chicago. She did her residency in neurology and was fellowship-trained in neurophysiology at Rush University Medical Center.
