INLAND NORTHWEST AREA Anthony J. Santiago , Movement Disorder Specialist Liberty Lake/Spokane Washington area Recommendation submitted by S. Woodbridge
“Dr. Santiago, a Movement Disorder Specialist. As a doctor, is the utmost in professionalism and yet practices with compassion and respect for his patients. He becomes a friend while maintaining a doctor/patient relationship. Very knowledgeable in Movement Disorders, he knows first hand the illnesses associated with that division of neurology.
Dr. Santiago will not make you feel rushed. He is thorough and concise, patient and understanding. I highly recommend him if you are in the Inland Northwest area and in need of a doctor specializing in Movement Disorders.”
After 11 years and bad experiences with doctors, I finally got fed up and went in search of a doctor and or a place I could get good and caring help. I was just getting worse and my doctor seemed to not really be interested in anything I had to say.
…I live in Western Washington State. …It’s been a whole new world for me. I found the Booth Gardner Parkinson Care Center at Evergreen Medical Center in Kirkland, Washington.
They have three MDS doctors there, all of which are highly qualified. They have Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Neuropsychologists all in one place. They are a real team working together to be sure you are getting the best possible care. …they talk to each other and listen to each other - it’s amazing! And with all of this, you feel like and know they really care about each and every patient.
From day one, the minute you arrive you feel welcome and like a part of a special family. They are just one terrific group of caring people.
To give you an example of the quality of doctors they have, I’ll tell you about mine. Her name is Pinky Agarwal. She is a Board Certified Neurologist, fellowship-trained in movement disorders at The Neurological Institute at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York. She is interested and has experience with most movement disorder diseases. …she has been the principal investigator on numerous clinical trials and was previously Directer of Clinical Research at The Colorado Neurological Institute. And the other two doctors that are there are just as well qualified, …plus they are all real people that you can talk to, ask questions and actually get an answer you can understand.
For anyone in Western Washington, who is looking for good doctors caring for Parkinson’s Disease, check this place out. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They have helped me so much and have given me new hope, I will never be able to thank them enough!!!!
