“Getting a Parkinson’s diagnosis is life changing and was very frightening for me, but Dr. Andruska has been an incredible support. She has a wonderful way of normalizing the situation, and working through the challenges with you. Dr. Andruska understands the process of being a patient because she really listens, and offers compassion and encouragement, never judgement or criticism. I started seeing her 5 years ago, and will follow her wherever she goes.”
“Dr. Andruska is not only a physician but a renowned researcher, and knows about every new medication and treatment. I’ve worked with other doctors to manage my Parkinson’s disease, but no one had her level of interest or knowledge. We meet several times a year for a thorough evaluation and she treats more than just my physical symptoms, but knows everything that’s affecting me. I highly recommend Dr. Andruska; you will receive the best care for Parkinson’s and it will be personal and never rushed.”
“My father had been seeing Parkinson’s disease specialists for years, but it was a nightmare fighting trying to get an appointment, and then no follow up appointments were available for many months. From our first meeting with Dr. Andruska it was clear she was different, both empathetic and research-oriented, and her approach to care was next level. Every interaction with her has been above and beyond. My dad sees her regularly which is essential for a progressive disease like Parkinson’s with medications that need to be adjusted over time. When he has a health issue, we can call and talk to her directly, and that’s almost impossible to imagine in 2023. There’s no better doctor than Dr. Andruska.”
“Parkinson disease, tremor, and other movement disorders are complex. It is important to take time to thoughtfully answer patients’ questions, provide education about current research, discuss the pros and cons of all treatment options, and support their goals.”

About my concierge membership medicine practice.
I started the California Movement Disorders Center because I wanted to create an environment where patients feel listened to and truly cared for. I value the extended time I spend with patients. The most rewarding part of medicine is truly getting to know my patients and their families, so I can partner with them to take charge of their healthcare in a way that helps them achieve their best and most fulfilling lives.
