Mr. Badger was born at Johns Hopkins Hospital and raised in Annapolis, MD. He graduated cum Laude with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1998.

Over the last 15+ years, Mr. Badger has practiced neurology across the greater Jacksonville area.

During this time, Mr. Badger developed special interests in headache disorders, memory disorders, degenerative diseases of the spine, and peripheral neuropathy. Frustrated by the limited treatments available to his patients through conventional neurological practices, Mr. Badger expanded his interests into the emerging field of regenerative medicine and has since received additional training and certifications in multiple modalities within the field of regenerative medicine. As a result of Mr. Badger’s desire to provide his patients with the most cutting-edge treatments, his practice is now incorporating more comprehensive and regenerative treatments for peripheral neuropathy and other medical conditions.

Mr. Badger has expertise in performing various types of nerve tests, including EMG/NCV & autonomic nerve studies. He is also an expert at administering various injections, including peripheral nerve blocks for neuropathy & chronic pain, conventional & regenerative joint injections, and Botox injections for multiple conditions including migraine, blepharospasm, bruxism, and cervical dystonia.
