Tufts Medical Center announced today that it has expanded its neurology services westward, as Tufts MC neurologists will now see patients in Framingham and Wellesley.
Known as Neurological Services PC for the past several decades, Tufts Medical Center Neurology, located at 463 Worcester Road in Framingham, offers a wide range of neurological services, including general neurology, sleep medicine, neuromuscular disease, epilepsy and cerebrovascular disease. Tufts MC neurologist Kristen Babinski, MD, will bring subspecialty expertise in multiple sclerosis, while Tufts MC neurologists Taha Bali, MD and Oscar Soto, MD, will provide specialized consultations in neuromuscular disease and Electromyography (EMG). These physicians will complement the new Tufts MC team members, neurologists Zahra Ayub MD, Ludmila Fridman MD, Flavia Machado, MD and Lina Zaslavsky, MD, to provide neurological care to patients in the Metrowest area.

“We saw an unmet need for additional neurological consultations in the community, and we are extremely excited that our highly-skilled neurologists will be able to provide those services at our new Framingham and Wellesley locations,” said David Thaler, MD, PhD, Neurologist-in-Chief at Tufts Medical Center. “We are committed to keeping high-quality care in the community whenever possible, and offering neurology appointments close to home is another example of how we are committed to always thinking ahead for our patients.”
