“I have always been deeply fascinated about how the brain works.”

Mustafa Ucer, MD

Welcoming New Patients

 

I have always been deeply fascinated about how the brain works, which resulted in my choosing neurology as my career. During my training and practice as a neurologist, I became more and more interested in the field of sleep medicine and chose this area as my subspecialty. The more I learned about sleep disorders and their impact on our overall health, the more passionate I became about helping treat these disorders, and increasing awareness about them. Currently I am practicing exclusively as a sleep disorders specialist.

Personally I am a certifiable nerd and learning junkie. In my spare time I read everything about everything. I am an amateur musician and play the guitar and the Turkish instrument (saz). I love to exercise, and most of all I love spending time with my two sons Kaan and Hakan, I also speak Turkish, German and Italian.
