Jacqueline Bernard, MD

Assistant Professor of Neurology

Jacqueline Bernard, MD, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neurological conditions. Dr. Bernard has more than 20 years of experience caring for patients with a variety of neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS) and movement disorders. She evaluates and manages these disorders using medication, Botulinum toxin (Botox) therapy, and deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Dr. Bernard is a lead investigator for MS clinical trials. She has also been studying the neurodegenerative aspects of MS and other neurological diseases, using optical coherence tomography (OCT). This advanced, non-invasive technique provides three-dimensional images of body tissue. Dr. Bernard's additional interests include the incidence and diagnosis of MS in Chicago’s Hispanic community, and hormonal influences on MS -- particularly in the peri-menopausal state.
