Physicians & Leadership

Pioneering Rehabilitation

Carolin Dohle, M.D.

Associate Director, Stroke Program

Outpatient Services

Populations served: Patients who have suffered from a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI) and have rehabilitative needs, as well as patients with spasticity after stroke/TBI

Specialty Certifications

American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology

Carolin Dohle, M.D., is an attending neurologist for Burke Rehabilitation Hospital's Stroke Rehabilitation Program and is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Prior to becoming an attending physician, Dr. Dohle was also a Neurorehabilitation Fellow at Burke where she developed a clinical trial to test the efficacy of a ketogenic diet—low fat, high carb—for improving post-stroke recovery. She is now leading this clinical trial and working in partnership with the Burke Medical Research Institute.

Dr. Dohle also serves on Burke Rehabilitation Hospital’s Internal Review Board and the Clinical Trials Task Force of the American Society for Neurorehabilitation (ASN), where she is also a member. In addition to the ASN, Dr. Dohle is a member of the American Heart Association and the American Academy of Neurology.
