    Dr. Lowe provides consultations to children, adolescents and adults, their families and health care providers about Tourette's & tic disorders, as well as psychotropic medications used to treat conditions such as obsessive-compulsive, attention-deficit, anxiety and movement disorders.

    Dr. Lowe earned a medical degree at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, MI. He completed a residency in psychiatry at the University of Rochester's Strong Memorial Hospital in New York and a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at the Child Study Center at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He then completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Child Study Center in movement disorders and developmental disabilities, followed by a faculty position at Yale University. He was recruited to UCSF in 1983.

    He is a recently retired associate professor of psychiatry in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UCSF, on part-time recall to UCSF for research activities.
