Personalized attention from experts who care
With conditions such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), tremor, dystonia, and tics, collaboration with a movement disorders specialist is key. Our experts understand your symptoms and can offer a comprehensive approach to optimize your functioning. We see the bigger picture and emphasize a partnership with you and your family.
Support for the Whole Patient and Their Families
Properly managing movement disorders must include both education and support. With informational programs, support groups, psychological care, and caregiver guidance, we’re with you at every step. Our partnership with American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) provides structured support groups for newly diagnosed PD patients and their families.
