When Dr. Jonathan Vogel left New York City to join the staff of Clinical Neurosciences in January 2009, it was a homecoming for the third-generation physician.
Born in Evanston Hospital, where his father at that time was an emergency room doctor, Dr. Vogel grew up on Chicago’s North Shore and graduated from New Trier Township High School in Winnetka.
At Emory University in Atlanta, Dr. Vogel received a bachelor of art’s degree in Middle Eastern Studies. He then gained acceptance to Rush Medical College in Chicago, where he received his MD in 2003.
After a one-year internal medicine internship at Northwestern University McGaw Medical Center, Dr. Vogel spent three years as a neurology resident and another year as an anesthesia pain management fellow at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.
A three-week trip to China, during his medical school studies, helped spark Dr. Vogel’s interest in Eastern medicine. He has received extensive medical acupuncture training from the Helms Medical Institute of UCLA and Stanford and incorporates acupuncture in his treatment of some patients.
Board certified in psychiatry and neurology and board eligible in pain medicine, Dr. Vogel is highly regarded for his focused approach in identifying the best treatment regimen for those in his care.
On the strength of his distinctive diagnostic perspective, spanning neurology and pain medicine, Dr. Vogel is especially gratified to be able to help people throughout their treatment process.
