Expert Evaluation

The proper care of people with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders begins with an early and accurate diagnosis. Patients with movement disorders who are assessed at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell benefit from diagnostic studies based on the latest technology and the results of clinical studies. At their first visit, patients who come to us for evaluation receive a thorough evaluation for an extended period of time from a seasoned team of movement disorder experts. 

Our specialists take a complete medical history and perform a detailed physical and neurological examination. Patients may undergo imaging tests, such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging, through NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell's highly regarded neuroimaging program to help rule out other diseases or conditions that may be causing a patient's symptoms. This program also offers the DaTSCAN, an advanced imaging test used to detect dopamine transporters (DAT) in patients with suspected Parkinson's disease and Parkinson's-like syndromes.
