When Parkinson's disease develops, all emphasis shifts to getting the symptoms under control. This shift tends to guide medical care decisions, as well it should for optimal management of the Parkinson's. However, the Parkinson's disease's progression is unpredictable and inconsistent, and patients respond differently to treatment. It remains important for the person with Parkinson’s disease to continue seeing a primary care doctor to manage other health conditions and tend to other routine health matters such as physical exams and screenings for high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol level, heart disease, diabetes, and breast, colon, and prostate cancer, as well as other conditions that become more common with aging.
