Compassionate MS Care as Unique as You Are.
Here, you can find a comprehensive array of multiple sclerosis (MS) services provided by dedicated professionals among ten disciplines including MS-certified nursing, neuroimmunology infusion services, and clinical research. The UConn Health team is led by a renowned MS specialist and scientist working to find a cure for progressive MS. All of this is offered at one convenient location in Farmington in central Connecticut.
We are dedicated to our patients and their families and focus on personalized and comprehensive neurological care. We provide consultations for MS and neuroimmunology and second opinions initiated by patients and their families. We also partner with every relevant medical department to provide whole-patient care, and we collaborate with laboratories performing research in MS at UConn.
Our MS support group, patient education symposium, and other patient resources will keep patients and families updated about important information for disease management and new advances in the fight against MS.
Sometimes patients and their families may need additional information and reassurance regarding their diagnosis. Getting to the right diagnosis of MS can be challenging. We see many patients referred by their primary neurologist for an expert opinion.
