Research interests of Michele Tagliati, MD, include the study of early and advanced therapeutics of Parkinson's disease, dystonia and other movement disorders. Tagliati pioneered the use of deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's and dystonia, and his work contributed advances in the definition of outcome predictors and therapeutic settings of DBS. He is currently involved in research on the role of nonmotor and nondopaminergic mechanisms in the pathophysiology of Parkinson's.

Many of the physicians who have been granted privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent contractors, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent contractors will likely bill separately for their services. You may wish to contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
