The spectrum of movement disorders include Parkinson’s Disease and Parkinsonism, Tremor, Dystonia, Chorea, Myoclonus, Huntington’s Disease, Tourette’s Syndrome, Restless Leg Syndrome, and Drug Induced Movement Disorders.
Movement Disorder Neurology Consultation
This service is available to assist in the management of all movement disorders listed above, as well to provide input for patients with undiagnosed movement disorders.
This service will be available on a limited basis only to patients being seen by the neurologists within the clinic.
These are provided for movement disorders.
General Neurology Referrals
As this is a specialty movement disorder clinic, we would recommend that for non-movement disorder cases, referring physicians consider consultation with a general neurologist in the community. If there is a reason that the patient should still be seen at this facility please indicate why on the referral letter.
The lab will provide EEG, EMG and nerve conduction services. Requisitions for this service can be obtained from our Neurophysiology Lab at 204-940-8430.
