Welcome.

The aim is to make this Patient Guide the most comprehensive free patient guide for Parkinson’s disease on the internet. I know that is a lofty aim. But I will try my best, and make it so.

You can help me by suggesting improvements and new articles for the site. I will try my best to accommodate your requests. Let us travel this road together.

Sincerely,

Dr. Siddharth Kharkar.
