Current Patient Information

The VCU Parkinson's and Movement Disorders Center is committed to providing personalized interdisciplinary care and treatment for patients with a movement disorder. This page provides information to help each patient and family members to get the most out of their experience with us.

Getting in Touch with Us

If you have a question for your doctor or health provider; need a prescription refill or form to be completed; or need to discuss a problem with our nurse; or have questions related to a Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) stimulator, please call (804) 360-4NOW (4669) and select the appropriate option.

All messages are reviewed on the same business day. Response times vary based on the nature of the request and can range from two to five business days. Be sure to submit your requests early especially during holiday clinic closings.

Research

We are committed to advancing the understanding of movement disorders, in terms of both defining biological causes and developing new treatments. Ongoing clinical research is necessary to achieve this important goal. A unique feature of our center is the on-site collaboration of clinical providers from several disciplines that bring a diverse perspective to clinical research studies.

If you are interested in being contacted about opportunities to participate in research studies at our center, please complete and return this form to Ginger Norris. You can drop it off at our office or mail to her attention to Box 980539, Richmond, VA 23298.

A complete listing of our current research projects is available online.

Resources and Education

In additional to clinical care services, we also offer resources and education opportunities. You do not have to be a current patient to participate. Please check our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
