How to find a Movement Disorder Specialist

I am currently seeing a neurologist and have been diagonosed with mild PD with my only symptoms being a tremor in my left hand (thumb and pointer finger) and stiffness in my shoulder and left arm.  How do I find out if my neurologist is a movement disorder specialist?  Is it adequate to me to see a neurologist who isn't one?  I live in Flager County and my neuorologist is in ormond Beach, FL. 32174.

Thanks

This might help either for a consult or a referral.
