Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Parkinsonism can affect speech as well in late stages. His neurological exam and your ear exam if its with difficulty in listening to other things as well. Other wise his evaluation and disease management is advised.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
