Physician Advisors

As an independent organization, PMD Alliance is not affiliated with any one clinic, center, or institution. Instead, we partner with a multitude of movement disorder specialists from practices and institutions across the country. We rely on their expertise and experience to inform and refine our programming, and we are honored to work closely with them to serve the movement disorder community. Learn more about or connect with a Physician Advisor listed below on our Resources page.
