Parkinson Partners LLC provides individual patient advocacy and education for individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their families.  As your personal Patient Advocate, we offer an expert in Parkinson’s disease (PD) to facilitate communication with all your medical providers and to serve as a guide and confidante as you go through the stages of this complex disease.

If you answer yes to any of these questions, call for a free 30-minute phone consultation: 502-314-8307

  1. Have you or a loved one recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and don’t know who to turn to for help and guidance?
  2. Does your loved one have Parkinson’s and is struggling, but you live far away and can’t be there to help them?
  3. Do you wish you had a Parkinson’s disease expert to go with you to doctor’s appointments and make sure all your questions and concerns are addressed, that the “right” questions get asked and answered?
  4. Does your family need help in understanding your Parkinson’s and what they can do to help you live a full life ?
  5. Do you wish you had someone to help track your symptoms and the side effects of all the medicines?
  6. Would you feel more comfortable knowing you had someone to call when all kinds of questions about the disease are bothering you?
