Patient Info

Thank you for your interest in the Orlando Health Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center. We treat patients who have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis or who have symptoms that may be suggestive of MS and have been referred by their physician. If you would like to become a patient of our clinic, please fax your medical records (including the office note with your diagnosis) along with your most recent MRIs and contact information (name, number, email address) to 407-345-9765. Once our providers have reviewed your case, we will contact you to make an appointment. Your first appointment will be with our nurse practitioner, and we will automatically schedule a follow-up appointment with the physician.

On the day of your appointment, please bring your photo ID, insurance cards and an updated medication list. You are also welcome to fill out our new patient packet in advance and bring it with you.

  • Access to interdisciplinary care
  • Links to community resources
  • Valid information about current research and clinical trials

Patient benefits include:

  • Access to Interdisciplinary Care

When you are seen at our office, you have access to not only a physician and nurse practitioner, but also physical, occupational and speech therapists on site. In addition, if clinically indicated, there is a referral network of specialists, including urology, pain management, neuropsychology, psychiatry and other specialists, who understand the needs of the patients living with MS. Because MS affects many systems, it’s important that we treat any and all aspects that affect you.
