Dr. Ales completed his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California at Santa Barbara. His interest in neurology stemmed from neuroscience classes taken during his undergraduate studies. An interest in a more holistic approach to medicine led him to seek training at an osteopathic medical school.

Dr. Ales completed his internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Neurology at George Washington University in Washington D.C.

After residency, Dr. Ales completed four years of active duty service in the United States Army at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. During these years he cared for many returning soldiers from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He also served on a rapid response team for biological, chemical, and nuclear attacks.

He and his family are excited to reside in Colorado as they are outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy mountain biking, camping, hiking, and skiing. Dr. Ales enjoys gardening and woodworking. He volunteers at his church and sits on the Board and Scholarship Committee of the Colorado Springs Osteopathic Foundation.

I have been a patient for almost a year. I really appreciate the kindness that they offer. I know they are working for my best interests and listen to every word I say. They are dealing with the pandemic as best as they can. There has been one unreturned call but it was understandable what she was going through. All in all I am a happy patient.

C. Just

These guys are always polite and help me out with what I need them for. I’ve been having seizures nearly a year, and these guys have been going through hell and high water with me trying to find out what’s causing it. Good folks.

K. Myers

Dr. Brinley and the Sanexas team are great. I have been going in for Sanexas treatments twice a week for 2 1/2 months. Sherri, Mike, and John always give me a warm greeting and treat me with courtesy & efficiency, and always in a very friendly manner. I highly recommend CSNA, Dr. Brinley, and the Sanexas team!

H. Becker

Julia Brinley spent a lot of time with me. I did not feel rushed at all. She explained everything in depth and made sure I understood. I was very happy with this experience.

K. Pulliam

I was impressed with the staff at CSNA from the very first visit. The overall experience was professional and pleasant. I was seen on time by Dr. Ales. He explained every aspect of my examination as it was happening and then devoted enough time to carefully explain his findings and recommendations. In my case, surgery by a hand specialist was needed. He made a referral recommendation and then arranged for my records to be transmitted in time for an examination by the hand surgeon, in an office across town, to occur on the very next day. I don’t know what more a patient could expect…… I highly recommend Dr. Ales and the CSNA staff.

C. Beshany

Dr. Hammers and staff are friendly and patient. His explanations are always thorough and understandable, and one leaves feeling confident and we’ll cared for. His staff are well trained and responsive. Five stars to all.

Great Success!

I have been suffering from migraines for years. I started going to CSNA and have had great success. Very professional, listens to my concerns and are knowledgeable about coming up with the right medications. I would recommend this practice to my family and friends.
