Dr. Richardson, Dr. Henry, and Dr. Von Loren and Dr. Messa were all very attentive and provided pertinent information to me as well as answered my many questions. I had a thorough cognitive and physical exam. I transferred to the Parkinson's Clinic because I was thoroughly satisfied with the care I received.
