We have extensive experience in the evaluation of patients for treatment with disease modifying drugs that are currently approved by the FDA, and with subsequent monitoring of drug effectiveness. Treatment decisions are based on discussions between the physician and patient about the type of drug, status of disease activity, benefits, risks and side effects and patient preferences. Information on specific drugs can be found on the website of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
