Ep 2: How Is Parkinson’s Disease Diagnosed? And How Is a Care Team Created?

Parkinson’s disease can’t be diagnosed through a simple blood test or scan. After a referral from a primary care doctor, it often takes visits to a neurologist or movement disorder specialist before receiving a clinical diagnosis. 

In this episode, we speak to healthcare providers and those living with the disease about the diagnostic process. We also explain how to build a Parkinson’s care team - a group of healthcare providers that provide support after diagnosis.
