What should I do if I think I have Parkinson’s disease?

If you think you may have Parkinson's disease and it has not yet been diagnosed, you should see your doctor and ask to be referred to a neurologist specialized in movement disorders. During your consultation with the appropriate specialist, you will undergo an examination and you will also be asked many questions about your symptoms. Proper diagnosis will be contingent on results from a thorough patient history and complete physical and neurological examinations. Brain imaging (such as MRI) may be necessary to reach a diagnosis.
