Reversa Joseph, MD
About MeAs a movement disorders neurologist, I strive to improve the quality of life for patients’ with Parkinson’s disease through tailored pharmacologic therapy, botulinum toxin injections, clinical trials and deep brain stimulation. I believe in treating patients through a comprehensive and integrative approach using complementary and alternative medicine in addition to traditional approaches.
My ultimate goal is to provide compassionate care to individuals with Parkinson’s disease and other movement related disorders. I am passionate about advancing neuroscience through clinical research and groundbreaking clinical trials.
When I’m not working, I like to spend time relaxing with my family, traveling and watching movies. I also enjoy singing and have performed with acclaimed artists, including Patti Labelle, Yolanda Adams and Brian McKnight.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
