  • Problems with coordination

  • Cognitive difficulties, such as memory loss or difficulty concentrating

Diagnosing MS

Diagnosing MS can be challenging because the symptoms often mimic those of other neurological disorders. However, our doctors utilize a combination of clinical assessments, medical history, and advanced imaging techniques such as MRI to accurately diagnose MS and develop a personalized treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions
