Q&A Sessions: Ask Your Questions

Dr. Jori Fleisher will answer select representative questions every week. Due to the large volume of questions we receive, we may not be able to answer every question. If your question is not answered, you can also look in our archive of prior questions and answers to see if this is helpful. Please submit your question below.

We will only post answers to questions about Parkinson's disease. If you have other questions, check our health information section or use our contact form, and please visit regularly for new Q/A topics with our specialists.
