Stamford: Yale MS physicians are available to see patients at the Yale Musculoskeletal Clinic, located at 260 Long Ridge Rd in Stamford, CT. The clinic provides easy parking and handicapped access for patients and is conveniently located approximately a 10 minute drive from I-95. Advanced MRI scanners, a clinical laboratory and an infusion center are on site. The clinic takes a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disease, working together with physiatry, physical and occupational therapy as well as a full time MS nurse. Walking evaluations, bracing and wheelchair assessments can be performed as needed. Moreover, treatment with Botox is available on site to treat spasticity in advanced MS patients.
We understand that the diagnosis of MS can be frightening and that a long wait to be evaluated by a specialist is frustrating. When MS is being considered, patients deserve to be evaluated, diagnosed and treated quickly. Physicians at the Yale MS Center will expedite initial visits for individuals in whom another doctor (e.g. primary care doctor, general neurologist) is concerned about a new diagnosis of MS.
To take advantage of this, the referring doctor’s office should call our general appointment line (203-287-6100) and let the staff know that the referral is for “MS Access”.
