experts focused on personalized MS care
The Elliot Lewis Center was founded with one mission – to provide state-of the-art, comprehensive, multidisciplinary care to patients with multiple sclerosis, their families, and caregivers in a personalized setting. Today, as one of the largest multiple sclerosis centers in New England, our commitment to highly personalized, hands on, care continues to guide everything we do.
We are MS Experts
The physicians at ELC are recognized experts in multiple sclerosis and related disorders. Through our dedicated focus on MS management and treatment, the entire Elliot Lewis Center team provides cutting-edge care and access to all of the available therapeutic options and strategies. In addition to our on-site team of doctors, nurses, assistants, and a full-time social worker, we have strong relationships with other health professionals to address all of our patients’ needs (Urology, Physiatry, rehabilitation services, neuropsychological testing, for example).
The multiple sclerosis treatment landscape is rapidly changing, and we are committed to providing our patients access to the latest therapies and research opportunities. Our patients have the opportunity to participate in phase 3 and 4 multi-center clinical trials that explore the efficacy of new and existing treatment protocols. In addition, we conduct our own independent research projects to help discover important aspects of MS care and treatment in a real-world setting.
We Care for the Whole Person
We take the time to understand each individual patient’s unique lifestyle and needs, and not just through the lens of multiple sclerosis. We take the time to listen and learn about you as a whole person. Rather than simply offering you a single treatment recommendation, we act as care partners, providing information on the whole range of options, so that together, we can make the best treatment plan for you. Choosing an MS treatment and managing your symptoms is just the beginning. Our team, including a dedicated social worker, all work together to provide support and obtain the full range of resources needed to live a full and happy life.
We Put Our Patients First
Our care model is designed to take the stress and inconvenience out of receiving multiple sclerosis care. You have direct access to your physician whenever you need it. Team members meet frequently to review care needs and share insights. Our warm and welcoming facility includes a dedicated infusion center for our patients receiving infusion treatments. We schedule coordinated same-day appointments (for example, a visit with the doctor, phlebotomy, and treatment at the Infusion Center) whenever possible. Our patients appreciate our central location, ample (free) parking, easy access to our ground floor facility, and handicapped accessible restrooms.
