When you visit the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) Center of Excellence at the Fixel Institute, your care is our top priority. You are at the center of everything we do.
While there isn’t a cure for Huntington’s, research continues to expand our understanding of HD and new treatments bring promise to patients living with HD. Treatment plans for HD are multi-layered and require a collaborative approach which is what you’ll find at the Fixel Institute.
During your visit, you could see a neurologist, nutritionist, occupational therapist, social worker and more – all in one visit. All care, research and patient resources take place at the Norman Fixel Institute in Gainesville, Florida.
Whether you’re looking for a new patient visit or returning as a current patient, our team can help you schedule your appointment. Options may be available for telehealth.
During your visit to the Fixel Institute, you see a variety of specialties, including neurology, neuropsychology, speech and swallow therapy, rehab therapy, and more.
You can take a virtual tour of the Fixel Institute and learn about our history, our care process and services and our physical space before your appointment.
