I don't see any reason to single out Michael J. Fox in this article. He may be a famous individual diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but that hardly warrants use of his name here when no name is required to be identified, and indeed, the "fact" being associated with him is actually speculation about what "would have been" true.

When was this scale developed?[edit]

The article talks about when the scale was revised, but does not seem to mention when (or how) it was developed in the first place (or by whom). —BarrelProof (talk) 19:38, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Progression of Parkinson's Disease[edit]

I have searched for information on this subject and have not found anything that a layman could use to understand what the sequential effects of the disease might be - normally - is such a term has any validity. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Innovate0 (talkcontribs) 14:47, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
