About the Provider

Elliot Dawson, MD, serves as director of the division of neurology, director of the vascular neurology program, and director of the stroke program at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center. Under his leadership, the hospital is working to expand its stroke program, with a goal to upgrade from a Primary Stroke Center to a Comprehensive Stroke Center, in accordance with regulatory requirements from The Joint Commission. This designation will allow Dr. Dawson and his colleagues in the division of neurology to deliver a more sophisticated level of acute care for stroke patients, capable of performing interventional procedures both in the emergency department and intensive care unit.

Dr. Dawson joined MedStar Health after serving as an adult neurohospitalist and vascular neurologist at the Neurovascular Institute of Thousand Oaks/California Institute of Neurosciences. In tandem, he worked for Northridge Hospital Medical Center, serving as medical director of both the department of neurosciences and the stroke program. He is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, the Society for Vascular and Interventional Neurology, and the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery.

In addition to his administrative leadership roles at MedStar Franklin Square, Dr. Dawson provides comprehensive care for stroke patients admitted to the hospital.

“Neurology is a cherished practice that allows me to offer explanations, solutions, and life-saving treatments that were not available years ago. With each patient I see, I learn about a member of our community, listen to what is most important to him or her, and determine how to meet their needs. I love that every day presents new opportunities to offer hope, promote wellness, and practice generosity.” —Dr. Elliot Dawson
