Jean and Paul Amos Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Program

The Emory Movement Disorders Program has a tripartite mission of research, clinical care, and education.  Clinically, the Jean and Paul Amos Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders Program under the direction of Dr. Stewart Factor cares for nearly 5000 patients with movement disorders. About 50% of these patients suffer from parkinsonism. We have 16 clinicians, 2 nurse practitioners and 4 fellows specializing exclusively in movement disorders.  We have an interdisciplinary comprehensive care center where patients have a two-day intensive assessment by specialists in movement disorders, cognition, psychiatry, sleep, geriatrics as well as PT/OT/ST and also meet with a case manager. This program, now the “Merrie Boone Comprehensive Care Clinic for Parkinson’s”, has expanded its capacity and scope.
