Our neurologists at Ascension sites of care help you better manage your multiple sclerosis (MS).
About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is often unpredictable. One of the first signs of MS may be a vision problem or numbness and tingling in your hands or feet. But MS symptoms vary. Our neurologists specialize in diagnosing and treating MS for new and potential symptoms as well as a life-long condition with compassionate, personalized care. Our care team works with you to create a treatment plan with therapies and the goal of reducing and managing the severity of your symptoms.
Our doctors are part of a national network of neurologic specialists, sharing best practices and offering advanced treatment options for MS.
