Movement Disorder Specialists

DO YOU KNOW THE IMPORTANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GENERAL NEUROLOGIST AND A MOVEMENT DIS0RDER SPECIALIST?

 

General neurologists treat more than 100 neurological conditions. Movement disorder specialists are neurologists who must complete a two-year fellowship in movement disorders beyond general neurology and training specifically to treat patients with diagnoses of Parkinson’s and Huntington’s, essential tremor, dystonia, and various Parkinsonisms. They keep abreast of new and potential treatments and medications and can address each patient’s care needs with specialized expertise.

The Parkinson’s Association of San Diego encourages every person with a movement disorder to see a neurologist that specializes in movement disorders, at least annually.

THE PARKINSON’S ASSOCIATION OF SAN DIEGO (PASD) IS PROVIDING THIS LISTING OF MOVEMENT DISORDER SPECIALISTS AS A COMMUNITY RESOURCE ONLY. PASD DOES NOT ENDORSE A CERTAIN PHYSICIAN(S).

New physicians are added periodically. PASD is very appreciative of the support of our local physicians.
