“I love being able to diagnose and help my patients get better. I am fascinated by neuroanatomy and enjoy being like a detective every time a new patient enters my office for a consult. Finding a diagnosis is very rewarding.”

Dr. Picot is board certified in electrodiagnostic medicine and neurology. He specializes in neuromuscular disorders, headaches, dementia, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, movement disorders and neurodegenerative disorders.

Dr. Picot received his medical degree at Tulane University and completed a residency at the University of Maryland. He completed a fellowship at the State University of New York.

Outside of work, he loves spending time with his wife and 5 children. Together they hike with their Rhodesian ridgeback. Dr. Picot also enjoys taking his boat out, playing golf, tennis and exercising. He also likes to read, especially non-fiction.
