    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book should appeal to anyone who deals with medical problems in the geriatric population. It would be of value not only to neurologists and geriatricians, but also to nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, etc. Its major strength lies in its advocacy for a multidisciplinary approach and for the importance of rehabilitation in patient management. It provides food for thought concerning how we might care for these patients better within our medical system." The Canadian Journal of Neurological Sciences

    "handy reference on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with Parkinson disease (PD) and parkinsonism...this book is accurate and u to date, and residents, general neurologists and geriatricians or anyone who sees a large number of elderly patients should find the clinically relevant information useful." ARCH NEUROL Aug 2001
