Dr. Pahwa is internationally known in movement disorders, and is expert in the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. His practice at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City is located within the Alfred Landon Movement Disorder Clinic. I experienced a several month wait to see Dr. Pahwa, but after seeing him the first time it is apparent why. I feel so fortunate to now be counted at a regular patient. He and his staff could practice in any city, and I am so blessed they choseKC

The office staff were very friendly, but the students gathering information in the exam rooms had no bedside manner whatsoever. After waiting about six months to see the doctor, I would expect a better experience. After nearly an hour wait, Dr. Pahwa arrived and was cordial. I was hopeful that our experience would be more positive. He does not sugar-coat his observations and gives his opinion without editing. We left a bit down when we could have received the same info. w/ a more positive spin.

DR PAHWA INSTRUCTED MY DEEP BRAIN SURGERY TO THE LEFT SIDE OF MY BRAIN AND PREDICTED THAT MY PARKINSON WOULD SOON MOVE TO THE LEFT SIDE OF MY BODY. SO FAR(1 YR PLUS) IT HASNT. I FEEL THAT THE DBS HAS DONE WONDERS FOR MY PARKINSONS AND I ALSO HAVE ADDED REGENERATIVE MEDICINE (STEM CELL) WHICH I FEEL IS DOING WONDERS FOR MY PARKINSONS. DR MARK WEISS AT K-STATE RESEARCH HAS ADVISED THAT DR PAHWA IS THE BEST THERE IS AND I AM A BELIEVER. I BELIEVE IM ON THE CUTTING EDGE OF TODAYS TECHNOLOGY.
