Barton Health Expands Access to Neurological Care at Lake Tahoe

(South Lake Tahoe, Calif.) – Barton Health has opened a neurology office in South Lake Tahoe, expanding the area’s access to care and treatment of neurological issues. Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, stroke, vertigo and memory conditions such as Alzheimer’s Dementia. In addition to these conditions, Barton Neurology treats concussions and spinal cord issues; integrating with the health system’s well-known orthopedic services.

“Offering local neurological care provides a benefit to our community needing these medical services,” said Dr. Matthew Wonnacott, Chief Medical Officer at Barton Health. “Barton Neurology is committed to improving the lives of individuals suffering from neurological head and spine issues.”

Barton is pleased to welcome neurology specialist, Rituparna Das, MD, who sees patients ages 18 years and older. Board-certified and experienced in rural health care systems, Dr. Das was most recently practicing at Adventist Health Feather River Hospital in Paradise, CA.

“Meeting the challenges of an underserved patient population has been particularly rewarding for me as a clinician,” says Dr. Das. “I am proud to join the Barton team and offer an integrated approach to neurology treatments, prevention, intervention, and help connect patients with Barton’s rehabilitation, psychiatry and orthopedics.”

Dr. Das earned her Medical Degree at the Medical College of Georgia, and a Bachelor’s of Science at Emory University. Her passion for patient education and care shows with the high patient satisfaction scores she’s received, in addition to being peer-nominated as a Top Doctor by Houstonia Magazine in 2013. Dr. Das shares that living at Lake Tahoe was an enticing aspect of her new role with Barton Health and she is looking forward to living an active lifestyle with her husband and son.

Barton Neurology is located at 1139 Third Street in South Lake Tahoe. For a complete listing of neurology services, visit bartonhealth.org/neurology and to make an appointment call 530.539.6047.
