The only way I could suggest from here it to contact the American Academy of Neurology (www.aan.com) and ask for their provider directory which gives subspecialty information for a movement disorder specialist in your area. If you wish to discuss your current medications for parkinson's or any aspect of the disease, like the newer imaging modalities or genetic testing, please get back to me with questions, and I will reply.
