Support Services

The Gregory W. Fulton ALS and Neuromuscular Disease Center is certified by the ALS Association and the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Through these partnerships, we are able to provide our patients with access to support groups, equipment loans, in-home visits, and transportation to appointments with our doctors. Additionally, newly diagnosed ALS patients and their families receive a comprehensive patient guide. We created this guide to help patients and families navigate the day-to-day challenges unique to ALS.

Clinical Expertise

Partnering with a team of specialists can help you and your caregivers cope with the lifestyle changes that can result from this disease. Our clinics are staffed with experienced providers and therapists who have worked with patients with ALS and other neuromuscular diseases for many years. 

Our specialists include:

  • Board-certified Neuromuscular Medicine Neurologists
  • Dedicated Nurse Practitioner
  • Dieticians
  • Mobility Specialists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Speech-Language Pathologists

Cutting-Edge Research

In addition to providing excellence care, our clinicians work with neuroscientists on site to perform cutting-edge research studies. These studies include investigating biomarkers and evaluating potential new drug therapies. We’ve also harnessed the power of artificial intelligence to track ALS disease progression and to uncover genetic mutations associated with ALS. 

We strive to offer every patient the opportunity to participate in a clinical study, no matter their stage of disease. Being able to directly fight the disease and improve the lives of future generations is empowering for many patients. Together, we can find better ways to treat, stop, and hopefully someday cure this disease.
