I have seen Dr. Huang since 2003 and I could not be more pleased with the care I have received. His command of medications and what best suits my needs has been consistently outstanding. He has given me a quality of life for which I am so grateful. He may not find a cure for PD but he makes living with PD more tolerable for sure!

Dr. Huang received his medical degree from Shanghai Medical University in China and his Ph.D in Pharmacology from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in 1994. After a stint as a neuropharmacologist working on early detection stroke and neuroprotection, he went back to finish his clinical training in 1997. He completed his internal medicine internship and neurology residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York in 2001, where he was the chief neurology resident. This was followed by a two year movement disorder fellowship at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York focusing on the diagnosis and management of advanced Parkinson's disease and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) therapy.

Dr. Huang joined the world-renowned Parkinson's Institute in 2003 as a movement disorder specialist. He left the Institute in 2009 and started his independent Valley Parkinson Clinic, focusing on PD patient management and education. Dr. Huang's main expertise is in the management of advanced Parkinson's disease and related movement disorders, including complex pharmacotherapy and DBS programming. As a neuropharmacologist, he has an in-depth understanding of how drugs work at various stages of Parkinson's disease. He works closely with functional neurosurgeons at Stanford and UCSF in evaluating candidates for DBS therapy. He performs DBS programming and medication adjustment post DBS surgery. Dr. Huang's other expertise includes Chemodenervation therapy (Medical Botox) for dystonia and spasticity.
