People living with Parkinson's disease (PD) who seek expert care have better outcomes. Their complication risks are lower, and they enjoy better quality and longer lives. In fact, neurologist care saves about 4,600 lives each year in the U.S. alone. Better access to this care could help tens of thousands of people with Parkinson's.
Whether you're newly diagnosed or have been living with Parkinson's for a while, getting the right care at the right time can make a difference for you and your family.
