Seth Tuwiner, M.D. completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland in 1996 with honors in psychology. He was nominated to Phi Beta Kappa after completing a National Institute of Mental Health funded neuroscience research thesis. Dr. Tuwiner is a 2001 graduate of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology School of Medicine in Haifa, Israel. He completed his medicine internship and neurology residency at the University of Southern California–Los Angeles County Medical Center from 2001 to 2005. Dr. Tuwiner furthered his training with two consecutive neurology fellowships at Thomas Jefferson Medical Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His first neurology fellowship from 2005 to 2006 was in clinical neurophysiology with an emphasis on the diagnostic evaluation (EEG) and treatment of complex epilepsy patients, interpretation of evoked potential studies, and performance and interpretation of electromyography-nerve conduction studies (EMG/NCS). His second fellowship from 2006 to 2007 was in neuromuscular medicine with a focus on electromyography and the treatment of complex neuromuscular patients. He was honored with the best fellow teaching award in 2007. Dr. Tuwiner is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) with subspecialty certification in neuromuscular medicine, clinical neurophysiology (EEG and EMG) and vascular neurology (stroke). He is also board certified in electromyography by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine (ABEM). Dr. Tuwiner is on staff at INOVA Loudoun County Hospital and INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital.

His areas of interest include neuromuscular disease, electromyography/nerve conduction studies (EMG/NCS), epilepsy management, electroencephalography (EEG), and stroke. He is a Fellow of the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM), member of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), and American Stroke Association/American Heart association (ASA/AHA)
