Dr. David Jevotovsky is in the second year of a residency program at the Rusk Rehabilitation Institute at NYU Langone Health. A former graduate of NYU Grossman School of Medicine, he is keen on pursuing a fellowship in interventional pain medicine. Having experienced a traumatic brain injury during his medical training, he possesses a unique understanding of both the patient and provider perspectives of this condition.

As patients differ on the basis of age, gender, and racial/ethnic background,  whether they also tend to differ in how they express what it is like to experience a TBI and live with its aftermath; the role played by social media in the residency program; whether beneficial outcomes can result from having patients with a TBI participate in physical exercise activities; why it is hard for many patients, their loved ones, and even PM&R physicians to understand how a brain could be rewired; and different perspectives that patients and physicians may have regarding agitation/delirium, cognition, return to work, and support systems.
