    We just finished watching the DBS “Talk of the Day.” –our 3rd video, plus we’ve read other topics with nuch more to read later. I (David) am 71, married 50 years & have had PD around 4 years. My right hand is almost usless, both feet shake & are so weak I can barely walk, not to mention my voive/throat & my dizzyness. Yesterday 12/05/12, we went to our family doctor, Mark Graves, who insists I am a candidate for DBS, and emailed to us this (your) website. I believe your DBS is the answer to our prayers!! We will probably get in touch with you all after the holidays. We were so very impressed!!
