Neurology

John Difini, MD


Dr. Difini has been a practicing neurologist since 1987. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Difini graduated magna cum laude in 1978 with a bachelor’s of science degree in biology from John Carroll University in Cleveland, and received his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 1982. Following an internship in internal medicine at The Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C., he completed his neurology residency and a fellowship in electromyography at the University of Miami in 1987. Dr. Difini then remained at the University of Miami as an academic neurologist until 1992, when he left to enter private practice in Gastonia, NC, continuing there as the senior neurologist until 2013. At that time, the call of the grandchildren became too great, prompting a move to Wilmington, NC, where he took a position as Staff Neurologist for the Intrepid Spirit Concussion Recovery Center at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune.

Dr. Difini’s areas of interest are general adult neurology, integrative neurology, headaches, concussion care, and electromyography. He is board certified in neurology and electrodiagnostic medicine.

By working in different areas of the medical field, she has gained a lot of experience and developed a very broad skillset.

Influenced by her wonderful mother, who is also a nurse, she started working in the medical field as a 16-year-old nursing assistant. She went on to become a practical nurse, then graduated from nursing school in Lake Havasu City as a registered nurse. She is currently working on her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Aspen University.
She has worked in many areas of healthcare, from skilled nursing facilities to the emergency room. Most recently she was working in the surgery department at a rural hospital, where she met Dr. Ketcher, and has been working with him ever since.
When not working (which isn’t often, she works hard!) she enjoys camping, crafting, and riding motorcycles. She also has a great taste in music, and loves art! Her nickname is “Sleeves” (you can ask her why!). We love having Hanna on our team!
