Medical Specialties

Neurology

Medical Expertise

Dystonia/Torticollis/Spasticity, Alzheimer's Disease, Behavioral Neurology, Traumatic Brain Injury, Parkinson's Disease

Clinical Responsibilities

I am one of the only neurologists in the country with subspecialties in Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders and a Ph.D. in Neuropsychology. I have been treating patients with Parkinson's Disease since 1984; I have personally (I see all patients myself without the use of other physicians or assistants) treated more patients with Parkinson's Disease than any other physician in the United States. I see patients in 5 locations in New York- Manhatten, Forest hills, Brooklyn, Old Westbury and Lawrence. I also am an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with Neurobehavioral disorders such as might arise from traumatic brain injury. I have been diagnosing and treating patients with traumatic brain injury since 1984. During my fellowship at Columbia Presbyterian from 1987-1989, I was instrumental in bringing botulinum type A to the United States for use in dystonia. I am an expert in the use of botulinum type A for the treatment of spasmodic torticollis, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm and migraine headaches.

Research Summary

Enrico Fazzini, DO, Ph.D. has had a longstanding involvement in clinical investigations to improve treatment of movement disorders, especially Parkinson's disease. Dr. Fazzini is the director of American Parkinson's Disease Association Information and Referral Centers located in Old Westbury, NY at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and in New York City at the NYU Medical Center. Dr. Fazzini is heavily involved in clinical trials of cutting edge medications used to treat patients with Parkinson's Disease. Patients are drawn from 5 office locations in the New York metropolitan area- Manhattan, Forest Hills, Brooklyn, Old Westbury and Lawrence. In addition, Dr. Fazzini has been diagnosing and treating patients with traumatic brain injuries since 1984 and is able to draw from his extensive pharmacological experience in treating patients with Parkinson's disease to treat all of the typical co-existing disabilities associated with traumatic brain injuries. He is able to diagnose and treat conditions such as cognitive impairments, depression, balance impairment, personality changes, depression and anxiety - all of which are associated with traumatic brain injuries.
