Dr. Lew has an international reputation for the treatment of patients with Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and other movement disorders. He is a board certified neurologist and a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology. Dr. Lew is the director of the Division of Movement Disorders and serves as the vice chairman of the Department of Neurology. He has lectured extensively in the United States and abroad on clinical research related to new therapies for Parkinson’s disease and dystonia. Dr. Lew also collaborates closely with local and national advocacy organizations (e.g., the Hollyrod Foundation and the National Parkinson’s Foundation) to increase public awareness and to support research and care.
