  • Dr. Lamotte has a broad background in medicine and neurology with specialty training and expertise in movement disorders and autonomic disorders. He completed a neurology residency at the University Hospital of Caen in France and did a year of supplementary training in movement disorders during his first neurology residency. He then completed the clinician-scientist track between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Medstar Georgetown University Hospital as his second neurology residency in the United States. He worked under the guidance of Dr. David Goldstein in the autonomic medicine section at the NIH and developed his clinical skills in autonomic medicine through history taking and physical examinations, as well as exposure to autonomic function testing procedures. He gained experience in conducting clinical research in autonomic disorders focusing on autonomic nervous system dysfunction in synucleinopathies. He completed a clinical fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, where he had a broad exposure to various autonomic disorders in the clinic and autonomic laboratory. He is pursuing an academic career focused on clinical research in the fields of autonomic and movement disorders and is currently an assistant professor in neurology at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, where he sees patients with movement disorders and autonomic disorders.

    Dr. Lamotte was excellent. I felt like I was his very most important patient. He provided good information well explained and followed up with email as promised. A caring and compassionate man. Thank you.

    Dr. Lamotte actually listened to my concerns and acknowledged my symptoms. I left the appointment feeling like I mattered to him as both a patient and a person, and wasn¿t just some inconvenient number. He was very knowledgeable, explained what I could realistically expect moving forward with my medication, and made sure to explain things in a way I understood. He also made sure I didn¿t have any further questions at the end of the appointment instead of just rushing out the door. Thank you, Dr. Lamotte.

    An occasional smile will reassure your patient. Today from the onset you were not friendly at all. I felt throughout my visit that you did not care, very much like an item on a conveyor belt ready to be boxed and stamped. My husband and are are worried about my condition. Today when we turned off our computer we were somewhat frustrated. This should not have happened. We hope our next visit will be better.

    Dr. Lamotte is a great doctor. Kind, caring, and very knowledgeable. He clearly cared about me, made me very comfortable and explained things so I understood. I made a 6 hour drive to see him and will do it again if I need to see him.
