The NCD movement disorder specialists are recognized for our expertise in the diagnosis and management of movement disorders in adults. Our pioneering research into further understanding Parkinson’s Disease and treating the symptoms has provided innovative care for our patients and their families.
Dedicated to providing comprehensive care, we diagnose, treat, and research a wide range of disorders in adults that affect movement including Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, ataxia, tremor, tics, and Huntington’s disease and other choreas.
