As a movement-disorders neurologist at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, which is about 85 miles away from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, I have been fortunate to learn much about Parkinson disease (PD) through the multitude of patients who have made the trek to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion with Dr J. Eric Ahlskog and then returned for ongoing care. Now, Parkinson's Disease Treatment Guide for Physicians offers the opportunity for a second opinion or at least a primary learning source in 400 pages. Despite the numerous books published on PD, few have the depth and practical guidance that this one has.
