About me

Steven E. Lo, MD, is a movement disorders specialist in the Department of Neurology at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Dr. Lo is board certified in neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He sees patients in the movement disorders specialty clinic for the evaluation and management of Parkinson's disease and parkinsonism, dystonias, tremors, choreas, myoclonus and tic disorders. Dr. Lo also performs botulinum toxin injections and deep brain stimulation programming.
Dr. Lo enjoys collaborating with his patients, fully explaining the diagnosis and treatment options and giving patients time to ask questions. He provides guidance to his patients so that they can play an active role in their treatment plan.
As an attending neurologist, Dr. Lo supervises and trains neurology residents and movement disorders fellows in the clinical setting (inpatient and outpatient clinical care), and supervises and trains rotating third- and fourth-year medical students at the Georgetown University School of Medicine. He is an associate residency director for the department's neurology residency program, and is chair of the residency's Clinical Competency Committee. As part of his responsibilities for the Department of Neurology, Dr. Lo served as director and primary organizer for the combined Neurosciences Grand Rounds lecture series from 2009 to 2013, and was the primary organizer for the department's first ever neurology CME courses, Update on Therapeutics in Neurology. Dr. Lo is also a member of the Georgetown Huntington's Disease Care, Education, and Research Center (HD CERC), treating Huntington's disease patients in this multi-disciplinary program.
