Movement disorder specialists are neurologists with additional training in movement disorders, especially Parkinson’s disease as well as other movement disorders. The benefit of seeing a movement disorder specialist is that they are usually on the cutting-edge of knowledge and treatment of PD and other movement disorders and are often best equipped to tailor a plan of care for you and your specific needs.

A movement disorder specialist will work closely with your neurologist or current doctor to help ensure your needs are met. A movement disorder specialist is also likely to have relationships with other specialists and allied care professionals who could help provide a more holistic, or complete, level of care.
