FINDING an MS Care Provider

The National MS Society's Partners in MS Care program recognizes and supports quality MS care. The program involves healthcare professionals in the areas of:
  • Center for Comprehensive MS Care: Additionally shown the ability to offer a multi-disciplinary model of care to address the often complex needs of many people with MS. They offer access to a full array of medical, psycho-social and rehabilitation services delivered in a coordinated fashion where providers share common goals for patient outcomes.
  • Neurologic Care: Neurologists with current knowledge and experience treating MS.
  • Rehabilitation: Physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech/language pathologists with demonstrated knowledge in evaluating and treating people with MS.
  • Mental Health:  Psychologists, social workers, counselors, and marriage and family counselors.
All Partners are expected to communicate with all other healthcare providers who are involved in each individual's care.

To find your Partner in MS Care, use the search tools on the left. New Partners in MS Care are regularly added. If you do not find what you are searching for, want personal assistance, or seek additional names of healthcare providers, please contact an MS Navigator.
