Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

Premier Pulse     March 2021

March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, a disease that affects nearly one million people in the United States, according to the National MS Society. The Premier Health Clinical Neuroscience Institute’s Multiple Sclerosis Center at Miami Valley Hospital South offers local care for patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Multiple Sclerosis Center brings together the latest advanced treatments, methods, and approaches in caring for patients with MS and other neuroimmunology disorders, such as neuromyelitis optica (NMO), myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG), and others. Specialist Tracy Eicher, MD, MSCS, and an advanced nurse practitioner are both certified in multiple sclerosis care by the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers. 

Additionally, the CNSI Infusion Center offers a variety of best practice therapies focused on MS. In addition to the most up-to-date therapy, patient benefits of the infusion center start with the care area. CNSI is the only neuro-infusion center in the area in which each patient is treated in a private room with a comfortable infusion recliner. With the infusion center located in the CNSI clinic, providers have immediate access to the patient for any issue or treatment questions. 

Learn more about the CNSI’s Multiple Sclerosis Center or visit the CNSI website.

To refer a patient for neurological evaluation and treatment, call (937) 438-7500(937) 438-7500 or look for Clinical Neuroscience Institute in EPIC and include “Direct Referral to Dr. Eicher” in the comment section. Non-EPIC practices may use the Clinical Neuroscience Institute referral sheet.
