Referring Physicians

We are dedicated to assisting neurologists and physicians within the community in the diagnosis and care of their patients. Comprehensive consultations for diagnostic and/or treatment questions are conducted by one of the attending MS specialists. Referring physicians may request one-time consultations, short-term consultations or assumption of care. The MS Center commonly fulfills requests to evaluate patients for:

  • Atypical findings on MRI.
  • Confirmation of an MS diagnosis.
  • Ascertainment of treatment efficacy in an established patient.
  • Review of treatment options.
  • Discussion of adverse events associated with biologic and pharmacologic MS therapies.
  • Family/genetic counseling in multiplex families.
  • Discussion of clinical trials.
  • Advanced diagnostic testing (high-field MRI, OCT, PET).
  • Rehabilitative medicine.

We understand the sense of urgency and psychological stress within a patient with suspected MS, and thus every effort is made to evaluate patients within one week of referral. Referring physicians receive copies of our complete evaluation.
