Nathan Bernier-Parker, D.V.M.
Dr. Parker was born in Montreal, Quebec and completed his DVM at the University of Montreal. His interest in neurology began after his first neurology lecture in veterinary medicine. “This intricate subject started to fascinate me. I am amazed by the complexity and beauty of the nervous system. There is always so much more to learn, that you can never be satisfied.” After his DVM, he completed a rotating internship in a private practice in Montreal followed by a specialty internship in Toronto. Dr. Parker’s professional interests include all aspects of neurology, especially idiopathic epilepsy and surgical neurology.
