Background: Telemedicine (TM) consultations have shown to be feasible for the management of neurological conditions including movement disorders. In contrast, satisfaction with such consultations have been less studied. Objective: To assess the satisfaction of persons with a movement disorder with a TM consultation in comparison to previous experiences in face-to-face visits. Subjects and Methods: A cross-sectional multicenter study was carried out. Persons with a diagnosis of a movement disorder underwent a TM consultation. After the consultation concluded, a satisfaction survey was sent for the subject to fill out anonymously. The survey included ease of use-related items, setup-related items, and quality-of-service-related items. Results: A total of 175 survey responses were received (response rate of 71.4%), all of which were included for analysis. A total of 102 subjects considered that the TM consultation involved much less time in comparison to their previous experience with face-to-face visits. Overall, 96% reported to be satisfied with the consultation. In addition, 92% were satisfied or very satisfied with the neurologist ability to communicate recommendations. Furthermore, 93.7% indicated that the consultation was valuable, and 90.9% considered that they would recommend teleconsultation to another patient. Conclusion: Patients with a diagnosis of a movement disorder consider TM as a convenient and potential tool for health services with a high level of satisfaction.
