Here is My Question:
Is there a site where my MS diagnosis of 15 years can be treated? There are no local MS doctors and I have no reliable transportation to travel to another town. I'm in Decatur, AL
You need an MS specialist who you can see in consultation at least once a year and who will work with your local primary care doctor or general neurologist. I would suggest traveling to the Vanderbilt University Multiple Sclerosis Center to see either Drs. Harold Moses or Ram Sriram or any of the other MS specialists in the program. Your local doctor should be able to provide a referral to their center. When I look up the travel distance from Decatur Alabama to Nashville it says it is only a 1 ½ hour drive. You can also contact the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for a list of certified compressive Multiple Sclerosis program within a reasonable driving radius.
