NorthBay Healthcare neurologist Shahid Rehman, M.D. will discuss Parkinson’s disease symptoms and treatments during the next #OurDocTalk chat from 8 to 8:30 a.m. May 17 on Facebook.
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. Tremors may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson’s but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.
NorthBay’s #OurDocTalk is a series of live Facebook chats designed to connect practitioners with the community to answer questions on a variety of health issues. Interested followers who visit NorthBay’s Facebook page, Facebook.com/NorthBayHealthcare, will be able to post their questions and comments, or send them via Facebook Messenger, and then Rehman will reply. Questions also may be submitted in advance to Robin.Miller@NorthBay.org.
Have a question? NorthBay welcomes, and encourages visitors to its Facebook page to submit questions in advance. In order to protect personal medical information, followers who submit questions in advance are asked pose to their questions in a more general way. For example, instead of writing “I have …,” write “I know someone who has ...” or “What if a person has … .”
