Neurologists

The National Ataxia Foundation has compiled a list of neurologists across the United States and in some countries who see patients who have Ataxia or other movement disorders. The NAF does not verify the medical qualifications, licenses, or medical practice capabilities of the listed physicians.

Each PDF file below includes a list of neurologists, with contact information, who have indicated that they have an interest in serving Ataxia patients. You will need to download and install the free Adobe Reader to open any of the PDF files.

Ataxia Clinics

Ataxia Clinics are specialty clinics committed to providing specialized medical care for people affected with Cerebellar Ataxia.
