She is Board-certified both in vascular neurology and neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology. Her medical degree is from the University of Rochester.

Dr. Ishida has her name on 70 publications in the professional literature.    

The following topics were discussed in Part 2: once patients arrive at NYU Langone Health emergency rooms and a stroke is confirmed, the steps in treatment that will follow; after stroke treatments are provided, how prognostication is affected by the interplay between demographic factors, such as age, sex, and ethnicity, the kind of stroke, stroke causation, and clinical severity; the role, if any, that blood biomarkers play in improving the prognostic assessment; how a patient’s cognition is affected by having a stroke, the degree to which factors such as pre- and post-stroke physical fitness, smoking, and body weight play a role; and the kind of impact that related mental states, such as depression and anxiety can have on cognition.
