Adrian Burgos MD, chose his specialty of neurology because he has always been intrigued by the complex, yet delicate, structure of the nervous system.
“The human brain determines how we experience the world around us,” he explains. “The study of the human brain remains a vast and uncharted territory with countless opportunities to expand our understanding. With advanced technology, we now have tools to explore the brain, which will hopefully lead to new and improved treatments.”
Because no two people are alike, Dr. Burgos regularly encounters new issues that require close examination of various human conditions that affect how a patient functions as well as a patient’s quality of life. He says it’s an area of constant learning, which keeps him engaged, with the hope of helping his patients.
Dr. Burgos was chief resident at USC’s Department of Neurology and later served as a board member for the Out SMART Stroke Foundation. He earned several scholarships and grants in his medical studies for community service and academic merit.
Dr. Burgos enjoys travel and has visited several countries. Growing up, he enjoyed playing soccer and still loves to follow professional soccer, football and basketball. In his free time, he enjoys exercising, listening to music, dancing and trying new restaurants.
