Neurologists/Movement Disorder Specialists (MDS)

Parkinson's doctors, neurologists, movement disorder specialistsIf you have Parkinson’s Disease, it is important to see a doctor who specializes in movement disorders. According to the Michael J. Fox Foundation,  a movement disorder specialist is a neurologist with specific training in the subspecialty of movement disorders.

These specialists typically see a greater number of patients with movement disorders and are more familiar with the treatments and medications that people with Parkinson’s need. Movement Disorder Specialists are usually more up to date on the latest research and clinical trials. It is helpful to choose a doctor who is aware of and  will refer you to resources in your community like support groups and fitness programs. Your Movement Disorder Specialist is a crucial member of your care team so it is also important to choose a doctor that you feel comfortable talking with and takes time to address your concerns.
