Question:

My father-in-law (age 79) has had PD for over 25 years. Now my wife, his daughter (age 27), has developed a recurring twitch in the index finger and thumb of each hand. What is the best way to access the PD specialists in Kentucky (or surrounding areas) for the most comprehensive early diagnosis and treatment options?

Answer:

A good idea would be to contact the American Parkinson`s Disease Association information and referral center through the following link:
