Biography

Jordan F. Garris, MD, is a pediatric neurologist who specializes in caring for children and adolescents with neurological disorders, particularly movement disorders such as tics, tremor, and more rare brain-related balance problems (ataxia) and involuntary movements including dystonia and chorea. As a researcher, she is particularly interested in studying functional impairment and neurophysiologic abnormalities related to Tourette syndrome.

Garris received her medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina. She then completed residency training in child neurology and a pediatric movement disorders fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Garris is a recipient of the Fullerton Foundation Scholarship, awarded to only three students in North Carolina and South Carolina beginning medical school who show potential for making an impact on the welfare of society. She is paying it forward by teaching and mentoring students and pediatric residents interesting in pursuing child neurology.
