Finding a Neurologist
The most appropriate person to help manage your Parkinson’s is a neurologist. Choosing a neurologist can be a daunting process, especially finding one with a special interest in Parkinson’s.
Some questions you may like to consider when making this decision are:
- Does this doctor have a Parkinson’s specialty?
- Do I feel comfortable talking about personal issues with this doctor and do we communicate well?
- What are my options in choosing a treating doctor?
