We offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services for people with multiple sclerosis.
At NYU Langone’s Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center, we understand that every person living with multiple sclerosis (MS) has a unique experience with his or her condition. Our team is here to address these individual needs with cutting-edge, personalized treatment options.
Our center, one of the largest in the Northeast, offers an integrated model of care that distinguishes us from other programs across the nation. As scientists continue to search for a cure, significant advances in diagnostics and therapeutics allow our doctors to identify MS earlier, initiate therapies to halt its progression, and aggressively treat a patient’s symptoms.
The Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center is committed to its mission of providing the finest patient care, researching the cause of MS, and developing better therapies for the disease. We support our patients through wellness programs, and are educating tomorrow's healthcare professionals in the fight against MS through our multiple sclerosis fellowships in clinical care and research.
Seamless Patient Care
A team of specialists in neurology, urology, psychology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, social work, occupational therapy, and nursing provides seamless care at our center.
An additional strength of our MS program is our designation as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care with the New York chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. We encourage our patients and their families to register with the organization in order to receive the latest information on MS management, research, and education.
Research and Wellness Programs
The Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center offers a variety of specialized groups and programs for people living with MS, and their families and friends, to help cope with the disease and its symptoms.
These include community outings and programs for mental health, rehabilitation, and wellness. We have trips to museums and the theater, clutter management programs, expert panel discussions, patient wellness days, mindfulness-based stress reduction, fall prevention, and a cognitive rehabilitation program.
Our groups and programs are open to all individuals who have been diagnosed with MS. If you are interested in participating, or would like additional information, please call our project assistant Marie Marcano at 656-501-7515.
Additionally, an active research program is part of our center’s mission to investigate diagnostics and drugs that could prove to be helpful in treatment and, perhaps, an eventual cure for MS. If you are interested in getting involved with MS research, contact research coordinator Zoe Rimler at 646-501-7518.
The director of our center, Dr. Joseph Herbert, recently passed away following a heroic fight with cancer. Dr. Herbert’s passion for MS care led him to build our center from the ground up—nearly single-handedly at first—and to serve as its leader for the past two decades.
Dr. Herbert’s empathy and humanity is treasured by thousands of patients as well as his colleagues. His creative and relentless pursuit of every therapeutic option, boundless intellectual curiosity, and love of teaching are a continuous inspiration to all who have been part of Dr. Herbert’s legacy.
