About Me

May Nour, M.D., Ph.D., is an interventional and vascular neurologist with the Division of Interventional Neuroradiology (DINR) — a crucial part of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center. She specializes in the latest, minimally-invasive techniques and devices for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of the central nervous system. She was involved in researching the first device approved for use in opening brain vessels in stroke and a coiling technique for treating brain aneurysms.

Dr. Nour also is the medical director of the UCLA Arline and Henry Gluck Stroke Rescue Program, which includes a Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) — a specially-equipped ambulance, built with a mobile CT scanner, point-of-care lab tests, telehealth connection with a hospital and stroke medications. Dr. Nour was instrumental in making Long Beach Medical Center the second site on the West Coast to host the MSU — bringing life-saving care to the community.

Dr. Nour completed a residency in internal medicine at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center and has completed several residencies and fellowships at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Medicine in neurology, interventional neuroradiology and vascular neurology.
