Expert medical care improves the quality of life for people with Parkinson’s disease. Research shows that those who seek skilled care are at a lower risk of complications and have better quality and longer lives. We strongly encourage people living with Parkinson’s to seek out the highest level of expert care by seeing a Movement Disorder Specialist when possible, or a Neurologist with extensive experience with Parkinson’s disease.
