Julie Kurek, MD, a second-generation American, completed her undergraduate studies at Brown University and attended New York Medical College. She completed a fellowship in Movement Disorders at the Cushing Neuroscience Institute at Northwell Health in New York. Her passion is to optimize the quality of life for those living with Parkinson’s Disorders. This means using a holistic approach, addressing not only the motor but (perhaps more importantly) the non-motor symptoms these individuals face. To that end, she lends a sympathetic ear and provides not only the latest therapies but education as well. She also offers botulinum toxin injections (Botox) and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) evaluation and programming. Her hope is to leave you hopeful.
