    Deepak Kalra, MD, MPH, PhD
    Assistant Clinical Professor

    I treat the whole gamut of patients with neurological disorders in both outpatient and inpatient settings. I continue to teach medical students and residents in their clinical rotations. I stay interested in the biological underpinnings of the normal and abnormal nervous system.

    I have completed ACGME-accredited fellowship training in epilepsy and evaluate patients with seizures, both epileptic and non-epileptic. At the VA Central CA Healthcare system (teaching hospital of UCSF, Fresno) I have led the initiation of the 24-hour Continuous EEG monitoring program in 2016 as well as the Ambulatory EEG program in 2017. Through frequent referrals to the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at San Francisco VA (teaching hospital of UCSF) and subsequent discussions with colleagues in San Francisco, I am able to provide continuity of care for patients that receive sub-speciality care at San Francisco VA Epilepsy Center of Excellence.

    I have worked to improve stroke care in both inpatient and outpatient settings and led the efforts to initiate a Tele-Stroke program in 2017 and serve as the local "Telestroke Champion". Lastly, to help expedite care I have worked with other medical divisions as well as Pharmacy, Quality Management etc. Over time, I have helped bring down administrative hurdles by eliminating redundancies in non-formulary prescriptions, radiological studies, and specialty consults that help save time as well as decrease delays in patient care. I have been fortunate to have received Performance Rewards for my efforts in 2018, 2019 and 2020.
