Whether you’ve just been diagnosed, or you’ve been living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) for years, chances are you’ve got some questions. Movement disorders specialist Rebecca Gilbert, MD, PhD, the American Parkinson Disease Association’s (APDA) Chief Mission Officer will answer your questions live in the next episode of Dr. Gilbert Hosts on December 7 at 10am PT.
You should feel comfortable reaching out to your own healthcare team, but you may have forgotten to ask a question at your last appointment, or there’s a topic that you were too embarrassed to ask about. Perhaps something new has popped up since your last appointment and you haven’t had a chance to talk to your doctor about it yet. This is why APDA is dedicating 100% of the next Dr. Gilbert Hosts episode to answering your questions!
Dr. Gilbert will cover your PD-related questions about diagnosis, managing symptoms, medications, surgery, navigating the holidays, travel, and anything else that you are wondering about!
