The MS clinic consists of a group of highly trained individuals specializing in the care of patients with multiple sclerosis. As such, the diagnosis should be confirmed as “definite” or “highly probable”, preferably by a neurologist before referral. Any of the neurologists listed below could evaluate patients in whom the diagnosis is suspected but not confirmed.
The Ottawa Hospital MS Clinic is an affiliate of the Canadian Network of MS Clinics and is partially funded by the MS Society of Canada-Ontario Division. The clinic focuses primarily on patient care; however, is also extensively involved in both clinical and basic science research projects pertaining to MS.
Patient information booklets will be available to you when you come for your appointment, however, if you are looking for reliable and current information about MS in general, we recommend that you consult the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada’s web site at www.mssociety.ca.
