About Me

For expert care when you or a loved one has a condition that affects the brain, spine or nervous system, count on Justin Persson, MD, a neurologist at Avera Medical Group Neurology in Sioux Falls, SD.

Brain, Spine & Nervous System Expertise

As a general neurologist, Dr. Persson has the expertise needed to diagnose and treat a variety of neurological diseases and disorders. With additional fellowship training in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry, he also specializes in working with patients who have dementia or a traumatic brain injury.

“Many people go years thinking they can’t find an answer for why they feel the way they do, but there’s a lot we can do now,” says Dr. Persson. “Although we can’t always cure or prevent a neurological condition, just helping people find answers can provide a lot of relief.”

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Persson enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, hiking, biking, watching sports and helping on his family farm in Stickney, SD.
