    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Meisel is the director of the stroke clinic in the ambulatory care center. His interests are to provide a thorough evaluation of patients with a stroke from unclear causes (cryptogenic). He is working to use technology to achieve comprehensive care of patients after their acute stroke care. Dr. Meisel aims to use this care strategy to prevent future strokes and the related complications. He also co-directs the pulsatile tinnitus clinic to investigate the causes and potential treatments for this disabling condition.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
