Neurologists

The most appropriate medical specialist to help you manage your Parkinson’s is a neurologist. You will need a referral from your GP, whether you will be a private or a public patient. In Choosing a neurologist you may like to consider:

  • Does this doctor have a Parkinson’s specialty?
  • Do I feel comfortable talking about personal issues with this doctor? Do we communicate well?
  • Is the location going to work for me?
  • What about costs and waiting times?
