Dr. Christine J Lepoutre has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

I was in manic state when I came to see Dr. Lepoutre. I never experienced such an elevated mood before in my life and I was scared for myself. I did not feel like she gave me or my symptoms the attention they deserve. I found it very difficult to communicate with her due to my illness. She has very poor follow up and left me hanging around suffering with my symptoms for longer than I should have. When my mood stabilized, not due to her interventions, I asked her what she thought was my diagnosis. She could not give me an answer and cannot explain why she was describing me certain medications. I felt like when she was finally asking me questions that could lead her in the right direction she told me that my time was up and then she had other clients to see. I left her office feeling unheard and definitely untreated by her own interventions.
I saw several psychiatrists before I saw Dr. Lepoutre and they each gave me a different, wrong diagnosis. Dr. Lepoutre listened and did not rush into a diagnosis. She prescribed medications that were affordable and that worked, which was a huge relief. I greatly improved under her care and think she's one of the best psychiatrists in the DC area. She cares about her patients and is in it for the right reasons.
