Dr. Harvey Singer focuses on general child neurology with a principal interest in caring for children with movement disorders.

Dr. Singer's research focuses on clinical problems, such as pediatric movement disorders, Tourette syndrome and motor stereotypies. He also focuses on therapeutic trials for movement disorders and the identification of genetic biomarkers, and studies of their underlying pathophysiology.

Dr. Harvey Singer received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University Medical School. He completed his internship in pediatrics at the University of Illinois Research and Educational Hospital. He completed his residency in pediatrics at Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital followed by a residency in child neurology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
