Get to know Neurologist Dr. Jennifer A. Frontera, who serves patients in Brooklyn, New York.

Specializing in vascular neurology, Dr. Frontera is a fellowship-trained neurocritical care specialist at NYU Langone Brooklyn Neurology & Rehabilitation Associates. She is also a part of the team of physicians within the Division of Neurocritical Care, Department of Neurology at NYU Langone Health.

“My passion has always been treating people who are in critical condition and helping those with severe neurological injuries return to their meaningful and productive lives. I care for people who have had brain and spine trauma, a stroke, or hemorrhage. I offer guidance and support to them and their families, since I believe that strong social and emotional support is critical to patients’ recovery and well-being” expressed the doctor. 

Alongside her clinical role, she serves as a Professor within the Department of Neurology at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine. She enjoys teaching residents and medical students, and has been blessed with the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors of the Neurocritical Care Society and to lecture around the world.

Coming from a small family of neurologists, one might say that becoming a neurologist was in Dr. Frontera’s genes. Her father is a practicing general neurologist and her brother is an epileptologist. From a young age, she accompanied her father to his practice in Kingston, New York, where she learned about various afflictions of the brain. These experiences led her to follow in his footsteps.

Upon graduating with her medical degree from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2000, Dr. Frontera went on to further her training. She performed her residency in neurology and her fellowship in stroke and neurocritical care at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center in 2004 and 2006, respectively. 

Subsequent to her education, the doctor attained board certification in neurology and vascular neurology through the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). The ABPN is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to serving the professions of psychiatry and neurology.  

With over two decades of experience, Dr. Frontera is affiliated with NYU Langone Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland Clinic Euclid Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Fairview Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Marymount Hospital, and Cleveland Clinic Medina Hospital.

Paving her way to excellence, her research focuses on early brain injury following subarachnoid hemorrhage; long-term, functional outcomes following intracranial hemorrhage; and palliative care for critically-ill patients. Since the inception of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, her research has focused on neurological complications of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. Dr. Frontera is a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Brain Health Neurology and COVID-19 Forum, which aims to advance knowledge, understanding, and care of COVID-19 patients with neurological disorders worldwide.

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurologists are licensed medical specialists who diagnose and treat disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles of patients. They examine a patient’s mental and physical status, conduct medical tests and scans, and evaluate the results to diagnose and treat the patient.

Having published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, Dr. Frontera is the Editor of the handbook “Decision Making in Neurocritical Care.”

On a more personal note, she speaks both English and Spanish.
