Movement Disorders Specialist

What does a movement disorders specialist do to rule in or rule out Parkinson's?  What questions should I ask a MDS?  I am seeing one this Monday, Jan. 28.  Any response appreciated, thanks!

   Yes. This is some information that could be of help that you could
discuss wth the movement disorders specialist:

  The first and most important step (I have been to several movemeent disorders specialists myself so I have some knowedge) is to provide them with al the information you can. Have a full history ready of any conditions you may have been diagonsed or treated for in the past, full medication history. Also crucial is a family history of any conditions either diagnosed or suspected, most especially movement disorders. In providing them with all the information they need you will be better able to assist them in determining a diagnosis
  Once that is done then you can ask them what the follow up and treatment will be. If at any time you need an specific supports and services and./or accommodatons they can be helpful as regards the eligibility process. Also support groups and rehabilitation (if applicable) can be helpful as well.
