Allison Hennigan, MD, is a board-certified neurologist at UT Health East Texas Neurological Institute in Tyler. Dr. Hennigan has always been interested in learning about why people make the decisions or take the actions they do, which led to her specialty in neurology and learning more about the human brain.
“I got into healthcare to help people and alleviate suffering. I think that I have an excellent skill for listening and empathy, where I can put myself into the patient’s position. This helps me work together with them to find the best solution that helps each patient where they are.”
When not seeing patients, Dr. Hennigan enjoys reading books, watching movies and playing role-playing games with her family. She also loves spending as much time outside as possible and treating her family to homemade ice cream.
