Elena Call-Calvin

Preparing for her first day of work – Dr. Elena Call and her cats Calvin and Hobbes.

Dr. Elena Call will be joining Kaiser Permanente Neurology Department at Redwood City and Santa Clara as a Movement Disorders Specialist starting in August 2017.

She graduated from Stanford University School of Medicine in 2012 and completed her medical internship at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco in 2013.  She completed her residency in Adult Neurology in 2016 and fellowship in Movement Disorders in 2017, both at Stanford University Medical Center.

Dr. Call specializes in the care of a variety of movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease, atypical forms of parkinsonism, essential tremor, dystonia, Huntington’s disease, chorea, myoclonus, and functional movement disorders.  She also has expertise in evaluation of patients for deep brain stimulation surgery (DBS) and post-surgical programming and care.

She is very much excited about starting at her new position at Kaiser and is looking forward to working with patients and their families.  She values care that is individualized to each patient’s individual needs and it is her goal to help patients optimize their quality of life.

She also has interests in global health, social justice and the healthcare of underserved communities with prior experiences in central California, Ghana, and South Africa.  She is married with two adorable cats (Calvin and Hobbes), likes hiking, musicals, and creative writing.
