Australian Movement Disorder Specialists

A visit to your neurologist should be a positive experience where information is exchanged and treatment options are considered in a collaborative way. It is best if questions are written down prior to the consultation so that you do not forget the issues that are important to you and also that you give the doctor any information that may impact on your future treatment.

A neurologist with a special interest in movement disorders will be able to give you the benefit of their experience in treating other patients with dystonia, but keep in mind that everyone is an individual and treatment that is beneficial for some patients does not necessarily suit all patients with the same diagnosis.

Many people find that taking a family member or friend along to the consultation may help in recalling the information discussed. It is important that your General Practitioner is kept in the loop so that he/she can take care of you between visits to the Neurologist.
