Robert Neel, MD

Robert Neel, MD, has been a neurologist at the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute, UC Health and the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC) since 2005.  He serves in the neuromuscular division of the department, and is the director of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Clinic at UC Health, specializing in ALS and autoimmune neuromuscular disorders.  He continues to work with the ALS Association and the MDA Association for the development of a comprehensive local ALS clinic for residents of our community.

He is currently an associate professor of Neurology and the co-director of the Neurology Residency Program at the UC College of Medicine. In addition to his resident education responsibilities, Dr. Neel has enjoyed working on the Curriculum Committee for the medical school, becoming more involved in the future of medical education in our region.

Dr. Neel was honored with the Cincinnati Business Courier’s Forty under 40 award in 2010 and has been named to Cincinnati Magazine's Top Doctors since 2009.

He remains a die-hard Cincinnatian and fan of the revitalization of the Cincinnati area. Having been born at UCMC when it was still called General Hospital, he intends to live in this area and see the region grow further on an academic and social basis. He completed medical school at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, followed by a neurology Residency at UCMC, and finished with a fellowship at UCMC in Neuromuscular Medicine/Neurophysiology.
