Comprehensive Care

The Multiple Sclerosis Program at Barrow was the first—and remains the only—Center for Comprehensive Care in Arizona. The designation, awarded by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, recognizes our commitment to providing a complete spectrum of multiple sclerosis care.

Each month, we hold a multidisciplinary clinic where patients can see different specialists in one visit and receive a comprehensive treatment plan. 

Our specialists include:

  • Two fellowship-trained MS Specialists/Neuroimmunologists
  • MS-Trained Therapists
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Nutritionists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Social Workers

Infusion Suite

For intravenous medications, we offer you the convenience of having your infusions in the same office where you receive the rest of your MS care. Built in 2014, our infusion suite includes amenities such as personal televisions and comfortable furniture to help you relax and pass the time.

Clinical Trials

As an institution dedicated to clinical research, Barrow strives to offer each patient the option to participate in a clinical trial. These studies help us learn more about challenging diseases like MS and make progress toward developing better therapies.

Barrow is also a member site of the North American Imaging in MS Cooperative (NAIMS).

Rare Diseases

While we focus primarily on multiple sclerosis, we treat a variety of rare neuroimmune disorders. Our team includes a neurologist who has a special certification in the evaluation and management of rare neuroimmune disorders. Other diseases we diagnose and treat include:

  • Autoimmune Encephalitis
  • Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder
  • Neurosarcoidosis
  • Susac’s Syndrome
