    Biography
    Jason Muir, M.D. received his medical degree from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. Prior to medical school, Dr. Muir graduated from Occidental College with a Bachelors’ degree in Biology and a Masters in Neurobiology.

    Dr. Muir is a board-certified neurologist in both Psychiatry and Neurology with additional certification in Clinical Neurophysiology. He enjoys working with people seeking treatment for a range of neurologic issues, especially epilepsy, sports related injuries and neuromuscular disorders. He has investigated multiple experimental drugs to treat epilepsy and was a co-principal investigator on the pivotal Repetitive Neurostimulation (RNS) trial. Dr. Muir strives to achieve seizure freedom for his patients through the use of medications, surgical options and mechanical devices such as the Vagus Nerve Stimulator.

    Dr. Muir completed a Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship at the Keck School of Medicine at USC, with special emphasis on epilepsy evaluation and management, sleep disorders and neuromuscular disorders. After completing an internal medicine internship at State University New York (SUNY) Downstate in Brooklyn, Dr. Muir returned to Los Angeles County-University of Southern California (LAC-USC) Medical Center, the affiliated hospital for the Keck School of Medicine. During his training he served as Chief Resident for the Department of Neurology.

    Dr. Muir enjoys a collaborative practice at Hoag Hospital, working closely with fellow epilepsy and stroke specialists while serving as Program Director of Hoag Neurophysiology Services. He has initiated and organized a hospital-wide program to provide 24-hour continuous electroencephalogram (EEG) services to critically ill patients within Hoag Hospital’s inpatient facilities. Dr. Muir is a member of the neurohospitalist service and stroke team at Hoag Hospital, and currently serves as the vice chair for the Hoag Hospital Department of Neurology and Psychiatry.

    Dr. Muir is a strong advocate for epilepsy patients in Orange County and is a member of multiple local and national neurological societies, including the American Academy of Neurology. His interests within epilepsy include diagnosis, aggressive drug titration, epilepsy surgery, evaluation and management of epilepsy (and other neurological disorders) during pregnancy.
