We care for people with a possible or definite diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as well as neuro immunology (NI) conditions.
What we do
We provide long term management for those with MS. Our clinic is run by a MS specialist neurologist as well as an MS nurse consultant.
We provide this service at two locations - here at The Alfred, and at Caulfield Hospital.
