Neurologists/Movement Disorder Specialists (MDS)

According to the Michael J. Fox Foundation,  a movement disorder specialist is a neurologist with specific training in the subspecialty of movement disorders. Movement disorders specialists typically follow a greater number of patients with movement disorders, and are thus more experienced in the use of the various medications (and their combinations) as compared to a general neurologist, internist or general practitioner.
