Review for Parkinsons Resources of Oregon, Lake Oswego, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed with PD in 2004. After the shock of the diagnosis, I spent two years in denial. However, I joined an exercise class geared specifically for people with PD,started by Nancy Nelson dba PDEX. When I attended the first class, it was a real eye opener. As I viewed my classmates and their various stages with PD, and heard them using terminology related to PD that I wasn't familiar with, it made me aware that I basically had little or no understanding of this disease at all and I had already WASTED two of the most important years of learning about PD.

Through PRO, I was able to obtain numerous books and attend several PRO sponsored lectures and conferences presented by some of the top people in the their field of research. The staff at PRO is just amazing. They are very knowledgeable, bright and upbeat!

If you have been recently diagnosed with PD, PLEASE contact PRO today. They can and will help you realize that you can live a productive life with PD.


If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The PRO staff is presently occupying two small offices. There isn't enough space for storage or staff expansion. However, it is important that they be able to fund expansion. The frustrating thing is that the media has been active in raising a general awareness about PD and in order to accommodate more inquiries, PRO may need to hire someone who knows about fundraising on a full time basis.
