Lauren Therese Phillips, M.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology and Director of the Neurology Residency Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center. She specializes in neuromuscular and autonomic disorders.
Dr. Phillips earned her medical degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio School of Medicine. She completed both her residency in neurology and fellowship in neuromuscular medicine at UT Southwestern and then received advanced training in metabolic and mitochondrial myopathies through a clinical research fellowship at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties, Dr. Phillips joined the UT Southwestern faculty in 2013.
Dr. Phillips’s clinical and research interests include neuropathies, myasthenia gravis, myopathies, and autonomic disorders. She is an expert at performing nerve conduction studies, electromyography, and autonomic function tests, and she has been involved in several clinical trials. Currently, she is the site investigator for a clinical trial focused on cryptogenic sensory peripheral neuropathy.
Dr. Phillips is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Autonomic Society.
