Atlanta Area MDS & Neurologist Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hello Fellow Parkies,

Greetings from Atlanta. Anyone have any great MDS or neurologist recommendations for the Atlanta area? I've searched for MDS in Atlanta, and it appears that they are all at the Emory clinic, which surprises me for such a big city. I would expect to find some also who practice at Piedmont & Northside, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Anyhow, I've experienced some recent symptom changes and was looking to get a 2nd opinion. I'm currently seeing a neurologist so thought I would search for a MDS. Thank you in advance for your help/support.

I know you  are very far away, Patrick, but those of us in South Georgia travel to Jacksonville Florida for care.  I would heartily recommend my MDS there.  If you have any interest in more info, PM me, and I will be glad to provide it. Best of luck!

Thanks swamper! I may take you up on that in the future. I'm originally from Savannah, and we are considering moving back down there. If/when that happens I'll likely be reaching out to you. Thanks again!

I am in Atlanta and unfortunately, Emory is about the only local source for MDS's and it can take months to get in.  MDS are usually associated with and near a research university.  Other sources would be Vanderbilt or UAB in Birmingham.  I go to Dr. Victor Sung at UAB.  Also, Augusta's a good source, too, I think the hospital is called Regent University Hospital but I am not sure.  They keep changing it.
