Module 3. Treatment and Management of Parkinson’s Disease
How often should a Parkinson's patient see their doctor?
Expert neurologists discuss the importance of continuous follow-up care for Parkinson’s patients with their neurologist in order to keep their disease well managed. Seeing your doctor often, having your medications adjusted regularly, and telling your doctor about changes and side effects are very important for best managing Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s can affect sleep, mood, and the gastrointestinal system, so working with your neurologist and multidisciplinary care team is also very important.
