Movement Disorder Specialists in Northern and Central California

We are often asked for referrals to movement disorder specialists in Northern and Central California.  A movement disorder specialist is a neurologist who is knowledgeable about Parkinson's Disease (PD) based on additional years of "fellowship" study in a movement disorders clinic.  

Everyone included in the list below is a movement disorder specialist, unless indicated.  We've listed a few neurologists who have special interest in movement disorders.  Just because someone is listed below doesn't mean they are accepting new patients or a particular type of insurance.  You should re-confirm all details with the professionals listed.  All physicians or clinics require a referral.
