When my three (3) sisters-in-law were struggling with Huntington’s disease (HD), in the 1990’s, there were few neurologists who were experts in Huntington’s disease and other movement disorders.
Today, there are 54 Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Centers of Excellence across the U.S. with doctors specializing in movement disorders like HD. The HDSA San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate has partnered with two local Centers of Excellence, Stanford and University of California San Francisco Medical Center, to heighten HD awareness so HD families can find their way to these HD clinics where they will have support from an interdisciplinary team.
At Stanford Center of Excellence, two compassionate doctors, Dr. Sharon Sha and Dr. Veronica Santini, are Co-Directors of the Huntington’s Disease and Ataxia Clinic and both are movement disorders specialists.
At University of San Francisco Center of Excellence Huntington’s Disease Clinic, has three expert neurologists, Dr. Michael Geschwind, Dr. Alexandra Nelson, Dr. Carmen Dietiker to support the San Francisco Bay Area HD community.
