John J. Panagotacos, M.D.


As a Marin County native I am honored to be able to take care of those in the community in which I grew up. Even though my years of training took me on a journey around the country, I knew that I wanted to return home to practice medicine here in Marin.

As with all physicians, my goal is to help people who are in need because of medical conditions, and like most doctors, I have a special bond with my speciality of medicine. Neurology is a wonderful field of medicine because of the intricacy of the nervous system and neverending neural changes that take place during one's lifetime. Yet it is the map-like network of connections that is laid out with such amazing precision that grants a calming sense of order and permits a starting point for studying the vast array of neurological conditions.
