Traveling to multiple physician appointments on different days of the week isn’t easy for anyone, let alone someone coping with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). At the OhioHealth ALS Clinic at Westerville Medical Campus, you or your family member have access to multiple specialists in one location. In fact, during a typical visit, you stay in one room and our team comes to you.
We bring our ALS specialists together in one location so patients can get their needs met with streamlined care in one visit. The clinic’s team works closely with ALS patients to proactively monitor and manage their symptoms.
Our ALS neurologists are experienced in distinguishing the subtle symptoms of early onset ALS. They take the time that’s needed to help patients and their families understand the disease and make decisions about care.
OhioHealth offers ALS patients the convenience of working within OhioHealth’s family of resources, such as OhioHealth Home Care for medical equipment and in-home care, and OhioHealth therapists for physical and speech therapy.
Our ALS neurologists, nurses, therapists and clinic coordinator are accessible at all times by email and phone to answer questions about ALS, as well as to provide support and resources.
There is no treatment specifically for ALS. We offer and educate patients and their families about treatment options for symptoms and effects resulting from ALS throughout the course of the disease. These options can include:
