“A Check-Up on Your Parkinson’s Care”
Program: What do you do if you can’t locate a movement disorder specialist (MDS) in your area? If you do see an MDS, should you still visit your general neurologist? There are many things to consider when choosing a Parkinson’s doctor. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the types of physicians who care for people with Parkinson’s disease. We’ll provide tips for finding a doctor that best fits your individual needs and we’ll share ways to best prepare for your appointments and how to communicate with your healthcare professionals to optimize your care.
