Biography

My name is Jessica Lee; I'm a vascular neurologist. I received my medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. I completed a neurology residency at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash., and a vascular neurology fellowship at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

I utilize Botox therapy for post-stroke spasticity.
