At Seattle’s Center for Healing Neurology, our mission is to improve the health and well-being of our patients through integrative medicine by combining the best of evidence-based conventional and complementary neurological care.


Message from our founder, Ilene S. Ruhoy MD, PhD

I started the Center for Healing Neurology 5 years ago because I had an instinct that Neurology was so much more. That instinct cultivated by my own health challenges. It turns out Neurology, OUR Neurology, is everything and all we have. It is our story of who we are, how we move, think, feel, breathe, emote, and what makes us tick. But that story is not yet written and much of our life can be found around the next corner. I wanted to help each story unfold from whatever point I was to join a patient on their journey.

With my collaboration with Gillian Ehrlich, DNP, we have been anchored by the cutting edge and have worked to offer all that we know to help our patients. And help we have. This is what I am most proud of.

My work and life have brought me to a place where I need to pivot to prioritize opportunities offered that will allow me to go deeper, learn more, and help more. I will remain the Chief Medical Officer at The Center for Healing Neurology which will operate under the direction and ownership of Gillian who has exciting changes planned for expansion and additional services. I will always be a part of the Center and the Center will always be a part of me. I will continue to offer consulting services on a limited basis.

Thank you to my patients. You are my community.

Reviews from our patients

“Dr.Ruhoy is an amazing neurologist, who truly listens to her patients. I believe her expertise in the field of neurology, is unmatched. She takes an integrative approach that’s looks at the whole person, a rarity in the area of neurology.”

“I love the way the entire office, from reception room staff to doctors are so welcoming and authentic! Their willingness to explore complimentary modes of health care is also a breath of fresh air!”

“So impressed with Ilene’s approach and her team – she’s always learning and growing and getting out there to learn more and integrate it into her care…I’ve had great results following some food/nutrition paths vs. medication to reduce migraines.”
