The Stanford Comprehensive Neurology & Neurosurgery Clinic in Emeryville

The Stanford Comprehensive Neurology & Neurosurgery Clinic in Emeryville offers a broad range of neurologic expertise and care to the East Bay population.  Our faculty manage a large range of neurologic conditions and offer an academic perspective to the diagnosis and treatment of our patients. We work closely with our local primary care, pain management, neurosurgical, and orthopedic surgery colleagues to provide a coordinated approach to patient care. Additionally, because our faculty see patients both in Palo Alto and at the Emeryville location, we have close relationships to neurology subspecialists in Palo Alto and coordinate with subspecialty care as needed.

In addition to clinic services, Stanford Neurology in Emeryville is also equipped with a Neurodiagnostic Lab with EMG/NCS (Electromyography/Nerve Conduction Study) and EEG (Electroencephalogram) capabilities. These tests can be performed to diagnose and direct treatment of neurologic conditions for our patients.

Olga Fedin Goldberg, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Director, Emeryville Neurology Clinic

Dr. Goldberg is board-certified in Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She provides comprehensive neurologic care to patients with a broad range of neurologic conditions, including those who have multiple neurologic conditions. She is interested in medical education for neurology residents and for referring primary care providers and serves as Director of Neurology Resident Continuity Clinic. Additionally, she completed the Stanford CELT (Clinical Education Leadership Training) Program for developing skills in quality improvement. She has led or played a key role in multiple quality improvement projects in the Department of Neurology, including those focused on increasing patient understanding of their neurologic medications upon hospital discharge, improvement of outcomes for headache patients seen in primary care, and in optimizing clinic processes involved in collection of cerebrospinal fluid.

Kathie Lin, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

Dr. Lin earned her medical degree at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine where was awarded a Dean's Scholarship and the Dr. Tryphena Humphrey Student Award in Neurology. She completed neurology residency at the Harvard Neurology Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston where she served as an administrative chief resident in her final year and was awarded the Michael Ronthal Resident Teaching Award. She then went on to complete her neuromuscular fellowship at Stanford.

She is board certified in Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She has an interest in the diagnosis and management of neuromuscular disease in particular neuromuscular junction disorders, motor neuron disease, and focal neuropathy. Additionally, she is interested in medical education and developing a practical framework for teaching neurology and neurophysiology to medical students and neurology residents.

David S. Hong, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurosurgery

Dr. Hong is a fellowship trained adult and pediatric neurosurgeon with additional expertise in spinal deformity, and sees a broad range of conditions due to his extensive training.  He completed his residency (with in-folded fellowship ) in his home state of Michigan at the Detroit Medical Center, and completed additional fellowship training at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, before becoming a part of Stanford Medicine.  He was recruited for program development and is Stanford’s neurosurgical contact point in the East Bay allowing for complex care closer to home.   His clinical interests include complex spinal pathologies (deformity, degenerative, instability, and tumors), brain tumors and cysts, Chiari malformation, vascular conditions, hydrocephalus, concussion, trauma, and congenital conditions, among others.  His non-clinical interests include global surgery, and global health in neurosurgery and meeting unmet clinical needs through biodesign and innovation.
