Dr. Jessica Litwin has the following 2 specialties
- Child Neurology
Pediatric neurologists diagnose neurological conditions in children as young as newborn, all the way up to adolescence. They can recommend treatment for sleep disorders, head injuries and headaches, but they also specialize in issues such as epilepsy, seizures and brain tumors.
Their expertise in childhood development and the nervous system make them an excellent resource for parents of children with autism, cerebral palsy, mental development issues or learning disabilities. You can consult with a pediatric neurologist before, during and after diagnosis depending on your child's specific condition and needs.
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

Dr. Litwin is very proactive in helping her patients. She is very attentive and concerned to my son's needs. Very thorough with her visits, very kind and professional. She listened when no other doctors would. After 6 years of looking for my sons diagnosis, she was the one physician that finally listened and gave it to me.
I have had terrible luck with neurologists in Colorado - they either don't know what they are doing, or they don't know how to deal with kids. Why go into pediatric neurology if you don't like kids? Anyway, Dr. Litwin is our 4th neurologist and the best we have seen so far. She is great during the appointments, seems to listen to us and acts upon information given to her. My main frustration is dealing with this office if we have trouble between appointments. The people you talk to don't listen the way the dr does, and things get lost in translation by the time they make it to the dr. I would give this office higher ratings if they could just get it together on the phone. That, and most of the time you can't get an appointment within 2 months. A simple solution to that is to schedule your follow-up appointments when leaving the office.
After a prelimary diagnosis determined by conversations with my child and I, this Dr. prescribed few medications and a request to do some testing at the local hospital to dive into the real problems. After this testing, I was told I would have to wait 2 months to have an appt to review them. The staff was horrible to me when pressing for more information regarding the results. It took a couple of months to get the appt and now I was going to have to wait another two months. Very unprofessional. Overbooking patients is not good business practice unless there is a specific reason given, which I never was. We have now moved on to another neurologist for no other reason than that he will meet with us within reasonable timeframes. I was shocked to receive this kind of treatment after paying $600 for the initial 1 hour consultation. I still have no answers regarding my childs problems. I could go into a lot more specific detail but will leave it pretty basic. My point is that the level of service provided for the amount of money paid is very poor.
First impression: Rode in elevator with her to office we did not know who she was and she did not know us my first thought was this lady is rude and thinks she better then us, very negative vibes. Then much to my surprise when went into the same office and she was my daughters physician. still very rude and would needed something would just yell out to staff. The staff are angles to put up with this woman we will not see her again
