To get a better picture was he tested for the Huntington Gene? Was he referred back to the family doctor for treatment of HD? In most cases, people how have HD will meet with their neurologist and/or a neurologist who is very well acquainted with HD. These visits will take place as frequent as the patient needs to be seen. It's important for the patient to see a neurologist to measure the progression of the disease and to monitor how they are doing. Another great reason why the patient should keep in touch with their neurologists is because there may be drug trials available that the patient may want to participate in. HD has many stages, and its best to seek medical treatment that is aware of HD and how it affects a person. Your husband may feel more comfortable seeing the neurologist every 3-6 months because they will pick up any changes a lot quicker and more efficiently than a general practitioner. I hope this helps and answers some questions. Feel free to email me or ask more questions. Good luck!
