DR. Jay Lombards MD
Speciality: Neurology, ALS
I am a neurologist with over 25 years of experience. Having completed both my neurology and psychiatry residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, I currently treat patients with neurodegenerative diseases like ALS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and MS at my private practice in Tarrytown, New York. My current research is in identifying specific metabolic factors that precipitate neurodegeneration in hopes of advancing the connection between a dysregulated immune system and neurodegenerative disorders, which is often referred to as a state of “immune exhaustion�? and chronic infectious disease. I also focus on research regarding the mitochondria in Autism, gene therapy in Batten’s disease, and antisense technologies in pediatric brain cancer. I have a strong sense of optimism and my efforts are dedicated to aligning with my patients in fighting against ALS by utilizing my philosophy of taking an integrative approach of pharmaceutical, non-pharmaceutical, and near-infrared light therapy approaches to address both the physical and existential-emotional issues that play a key role in prognosis.
