Dr. Oliveira then attended Brown University, where she gained valuable experience through a Neurological residency and Neurophysiology fellowship at Rhode Island Hospital. She is board certified in Neurology.
With a strong passion for this field, Dr. Oliveira has clinical interests in General Neurology, Neurophysiology, Epilepsy, Neuromuscular disorders (nerve and muscle disorders), headaches, EEG, and EMG.
