Yale MDA-ALS/Motor Neuron Disease Clinic
The Yale MDA-ALS/Motor Neuron Disease Clinic evaluates and treats patients with neurologic disorders affecting the motor neuron. Our clinic is designed to help patients navigate through the difficult process of understanding motor neuron disease and managing the different stages of the condition. We provide initial evaluations as well as second opinions regarding the diagnosis.
What to Expect During Your Visit
You will first be evaluated by our Neuromuscular physician who specializes in motor neuron diseases. After his evaluation you will be offered the choice to meet with other members of our team. We are a certified MDA-ALS clinic and have a representative available on-site to assist patients with their needs. Other members of our team include a representative from Hudson Mobility to assist patients with equipment related to mobility and durable medical supplies. Our Hudson representative performs in-home evaluations on all patients needing equipment. We also have a representative from New England Prosthetics and Orthotics (NEOPS) to provide patients with specialized braces and supports. For financial assistance with matters related to medical care our financial coordinator is available as well.
We are a member of the Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS) and can assist patients interested in enrolling in clinical trials.
