Biography


Dr. Andrew Lerman, MD is a board-certified neurologist providing expert care for patients suffering from seizure, neurophysiological and neurological disorders in the Miami community.

Combining an academic, research-based philosophy with compassionate care, Dr. Lerman’s comprehensive approach addresses the needs of his patients and families. Guided by the principles of access, availability, trust and reliability, it is his belief that not only does a personalized approach ensure a positive relationship with his patients, it also has an important impact on the neurological course and outcome of the patients he cares for.

Cutting-edge diagnostics and interventions play an important role at Dr. Lerman’s practice, reflecting the continued research, growing knowledge and innovative forms of treatment in the fields of epileptology, neurophysiology and neurology. In addition to offering the latest diagnostics and treatments, ranging from EEG and Botox, treadmill testing to concussion and medical cannabis for epilepsy, Dr. Lerman continues to dedicate time to research and will be carrying out studies on the use of technology in seizure detection, using smart watches in monitoring. Previous investigative work includes brain research and bench research in gene testing at McGill University; working with patients participating in cannabidiol programs at New York University’s Langone Medical Center; and stroke prevention and gene therapy at Centre for Brain Health, Vancouver.

Education

  • Neurophysiology Fellowship focusing on Epilepsy at New York University Elaine A. and Kenneth G. Langone Medical Center
  • Neurology residency at University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital
  • Internal medicine internship at University of Miami
  • Medical School at St. Matthew's University with rotations in London and New York
  • Bachelor of Science in Physiology at McGill University

It was while completing his residency at University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital that Dr. Lerman’s developed an interest in epilepsy, neurophysiology and neurology. Drawn to the fields that are by nature complex, he was fascinated by the continued progress in diagnosis and treatment and attracted by the fact that such disorders require a comprehensive approach in treating disorders, one that incorporates counseling and addresses care. It was this that brought him to open two practices in Miami, where he can serve the needs of the local community.

Dr. Lerman treats epilepsy and neurophysiological and neurological disorders, such as headaches, concussion, stroke, movement disorders, memory disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury.
