I have 2 friends with Parkinson's who are not treated at Northwestern, and their care has been far less. I've gotten speech therapy (they need it but it was never recommended). I've gotten meds for anxiety and depression (they need it but it was never recommended). I love how my neurologist specializes in movement disorders; how she works with a multi-disciplinary team; and how she stays up on the new treatments.
