Dr. Greenberg has disclosed that she has no relevant financial or other interests in any commercial companies pertaining to this educational activity.
Dr. Greenberg works in the obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders program, and I see both kids with tics and OCD or OCD-related disorders as well as those with symptoms consistent with pediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorders associated with streptococcal infections (PANDAS) or pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome (PANS). She typically sees two to three new patients a week who fit somewhere in the OCD, tic, or PANDAS spectrum.
