He also earned a Master of Science degree in biomedical science and clinical research at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science in Rochester, Minnesota as a National Institutes of Health Research Scientist Career Development scholar. Following his psychiatry residency at Mayo Clinic, Dr. Geda completed a prestigious behavioral neurology fellowship as a Mayo Foundation Scholar under the mentorship of Dr. Ronald Petersen of Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
Dr. Geda’s research interests include the investigation of the role of lifestyle factors (exercise, mental activities, and caloric intake) and neuropsychiatric symptoms of mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, and related disorders. He has published over 145 peer-reviewed scientific articles. Dr. Geda is the lead author of an international panel that developed the neurobiological theoretical model to investigate neuropsychiatric symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
Michael Garcia, MD
Michael Garcia, MD, is an associate professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Barrow Neurological Institute. He is board certified in radiation oncology by the American Board of Radiology.
Dr. Garcia’s expertise includes the treatment of brain and spine tumors. He specializes in non-invasive radiosurgery, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), image-guided intensity-modulated therapy (IMRT), and brachytherapy. He strives to provide the most effective treatments while considering the patient’s quality of life, values, and goals. He is a member of the American Board of Radiology, the American Society for Radiation Oncology, and the Society of Neuro-Oncology.
Dr. Garcia earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School in Boston and his master’s degree in biological sciences, with a focus on immunology, from Stanford University in California. He completed his medical residency in radiation oncology at the University of California—San Francisco.
Dr. Garcia has authored dozens of peer-reviewed publications in the realms of radiosurgery, medical education, and patient symptom management. He has also authored multiple textbook chapters in the field of oncology.
Kevin King, MD, MSCS
Kevin King, MD, MSCS, is a neuroradiologist at Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. He is board certified in diagnostic radiology and neuroradiology by the American Board of Radiology.
Dr. King’s expertise includes using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to identify and study treatable forms of dementia, specifically vascular dementia and normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH). He is a member of the American Society of Functional Neuroradiology, the American Society of Neuroradiology, and the International Society of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
Dr. King earned his medical degree from the Health Sciences and Technology Joint Medical Program at Harvard-Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. He earned a Master of Science degree in clinical translational sciences from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
Dr. King’s research interests include using automated image analysis to identify markers of NPH to help with screening for this underdiagnosed disorder. He also uses MRI to assess the health and function of blood vessels in the body and brain to better understand how vascular health impacts the brain. Dr. King serves as the radiologist for the Healthy Aging Brain in Latino Elders Study, a National Institutes of Health–funded study of 2,000 individuals to identify how factors such as the increased prevalence of diabetes among Hispanics may impact healthy brain aging and the risk of dementia.
