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.”

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.
