I agree with you, I also was happy with my neurologist. Until he made a statement that he just read an article on exercise and how beneficial it is. If he was a movement specialist he would have known tbat. Now I'm thinking what else doesn't he know. I am going to my GP to refer me to a movement specialist. This is to important not to have a Dr that stays up dated on all the research for PD. I encourage you to at least make a consulting appt with a movement specialist, if your husband is against changing. It's like having cancer and go to a GP for procedure to heal you. There is to much to know on the best course action to eradicate the cancer. I know because I had cancer and I am so glad that my Oncologist has not let me stop coming in for blood work every 4 months even after 7 years. This last blood workup, he didn't like some of the results and I'm going thru more testing. .

That's my two cents

Take care Eveline.

If you can, look for a Movement Disorder Specialist. My husband is happy with his neurologist, but he is doing well with just c/l at the moment.
