Gaithersburg Maryland Pediatric Neurologist

Dr. Latimer is an experienced and dedicated Neurologist in Gaithersburg Maryland. Our office helps children, adolescents, and adults suffering from neurological conditions improve their quality of life and restore their functionality.

Many neurological disorders can be debilitating and significantly limit your ability to perform normal day-to-day activities. We understand the difficulties that patients with spasticity, migraines, cluster headaches, epilepsy and other conditions face, and we share your desire to improve or eliminate the issues. We offer caring, compassionate, and effective treatment for these conditions so that you can enjoy a full and complete life.

Migraine and Cluster Headache Treatment

Migraines and cluster headaches can be extremely painful, irritating, and in some cases debilitating. Unfortunately, these severe headaches can become chronic and occur on a regular basis if left untreated. If you’re suffering from chronic migraines, or cluster headaches, we recommend coming in for an appointment as soon as possible.

We have several different services for the prevention and treatment of migraines and cluster headaches, including:

You do not have to suffer through painful headaches. Let us provide you with the relief you deserve.

Autism Diagnosis & Treatment

Autism is a common developmental disorder, that can affect people in many different ways. Some of the symptoms associated with autism include:

  • Difficulty with social interaction
  • Inability to focus
  • A need for routine/repetition
  • Problems with verbal and nonverbal communication

Autism is usually diagnosed during childhood, when the symptoms start to become visible. Our office has a vast amount of experience in diagnosing and treating autistic children. While there is no cure for autism, it’s possible for children to grow to live healthy and productive lives with therapy and behavior management. If you believe your child may be autistic or if they have been diagnosed with autism, we can work with you to improve their symptoms and development.

PANS & PANDAS Diagnosis and Treatment

Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections, or PANDAS, is a pediatric condition that affects many children throughout the world, and accounts for 70% of our patients. Dr. Latimer has dedicated a large part of her focus on research and treatment for  PANS and PANDAS. We are one of the few offices in the Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia area that offers comprehensive treatment for PANS and PANDAS.

ADHD & ADD Treatment

ADHD is another common disorder that can affect a child’s development, particularly when it is undiagnosed. Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder have problems concentrating for extended periods of times, and can be hyperactive. One of the biggest challenges for children with ADHD is the effect it has on their schoolwork.

Often times, students with ADHD or ADD  have problems concentrating in class and while studying, so they may fall behind. That is why it’s crucial to have your child tested and diagnosed with ADHD sooner rather than later.

We offer ADHD and ADD testing, treatment, and work with you to improve your child’s ability to focus, and also to ensure that they have the appropriate accommodations to succeed in school. Contact us to find out more about our treatment for children with ADHD and ADD.
