Our Team Approach to MS Care
Patients have access to diagnostic consultation from recognized neurologist and neuroimmunologist experts in the field, including interpretation of magnetic resonance imaging results by neuroradiologists.
We also make available expert whole-person MS care from our nurse practitioners and nursing staff, including:
- Symptom management
- Immunotherapy management
- Case management
- Health education
- MS-specific subspecialty services, such as MS neuropsychiatry
The MS Center clinic also refers to a select group of MS specialists at DHMC, including neuropsychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, neuro-opthalmologists, and social workers.
Additionally, patients have access to cutting-edge research in MS that is being conducted onsite at DHMC at the MS Center.
The most important part of our MS care approach is you. At the MS Center, you participate in your care plan. You will be actively involved in all aspects of your treatment, including the formulation of your treatment plan. Ultimately, our goal is to get to know you as a whole person and to design a customized care plan that most effectively will control your MS and optimize your quality of life.
