Kristine Domingo, DO


The program director of our movement disorder fellowship program, Dr. Kristine Domingo, is a neurologist with particular interest and fellowship training in movement disorders. She treats patients with Parkinson's Disease, Essential Tremors, Atypical Parkinsonisms, Tremors, Dystonia, and other movement disorders. As a Movement Disorders specialist, she sees her role as threefold; 1. Provide patients with the best treatments possible to improve quality of life; 2. Surround patients with a supportive care network by connecting them with the right services including, but not limited to, therapies (PT, OT, SLP, recreational therapy), mental health support, educational support, and community support; 3.
