Dr. Van Houten saw my mom 8 months ago. He was dismissive and rude. He would not listen to my concerns of Parkinson's Disease. He kept repeating no Tremors no Parkinson's. She is now in stage 4 and still does not have tremors. Had he at least tried her on levodopa we would have seen immediate results. We would have been able to halt the progression of the disease and she would probably still be in stage 1 or 2. We finally saw a new Dr. Immediately diagnosed with PIGD. Go to Dr Valerie Acevedo

He had me take Depikot when I was pregnant. It was particularly my fault because I didn't look up the side effects believing that the doctor would know. I was greatly mistaken. Know I have a child that is severely delayed and according to his neurologist he will most likely never be on his own. All because the doctor most likely got pain by the company to push the drug. I would never recommend him to anyone!!!!! I would strongly NOT recommend him!!!
