Dustin Nowacek, MD completed his undergraduate bachelor of science degree in physiology at Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University in 2004. After earning his bachelor of science, he attended medical school at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine where he received his doctorate of medicine in 2008. He completed a residency in neurology in 2012, and a fellowship in neuromuscular medicine in 2013, both at the University of Michigan. Following completion of his fellowship, he moved to the west side of Michigan where he primarily focused on the care of patients with neuromuscular diseases. Dr. Nowacek has a strong clinical and research interest in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), electrodiagnostic medicine (EMG) and the use of telemedicine in the care of ALS patients. Consequently Dr. Nowacek returned to the University of Michigan in 2017 to develop his research interests and further subspecialize in the care of patients with neuromuscular diseases, specifically ALS and inherited neuropathies. In this role, he serves as Associate Director of the University of Michigan ALS Multidisciplinary Care Clinic where he provides longitudinal care to these patients.
