Description

In this episode of When Life Gives You Parkinson’s, listen in as Larry Gifford gets his sixth month check up with his neurologist. Larry, his wife Rebecca and co-host Niki Reitmayer discuss the importance of trust and communication in building a relationship with your neurologist and all the other members of your care team – even your partner and your friends. Plus, saying “no” to a doctor can be difficult, but it is an important option to use when you do not agree with the prescribed treatment plan.
