Back to All Doctors

William L. Conte, M.D.,M.S.

“Fast-paced research and the resulting new treatment discoveries first drew me to the field of neurology and neuroimmunology. It’s especially rewarding to see these new, breakthrough treatments give my patients the opportunity to live normal, productive lives.”

Dr. Conte earned a BS degree in neurobiology from the University of Florida, graduating summa cum laude. He graduated from medical school at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and went on to complete an adult neurology residency at Loyola University Medical Center. He also completed a fellowship in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and neuroimmunology at The University of Chicago through a National MS Society Sylvia Lawry award. While at The University of Chicago, he earned a master’s degree in public health sciences.

Dr. Conte believes in customizing therapy to the individual patient. With a strong interest in clinical trials and research, he has been the principal or co-investigator on multiple clinical trials and investigator-initiated studies. He frequently lectures on various topics and presents research at national and international conferences. The MS center at Methodist, which Dr. Conte leads, is recognized as a “Partner in MS Care” by the National MS Society.
