Rare Neurological Disease Clinics

The Rare Neurological Disease Clinics are a group of specialized clinics that provide comprehensive diagnostic, treatment, and educational resources to patients with rare neurological conditions.

About Us

The Department of Neurology’s Rare Neurological Disease Clinics are dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, education, and support of patients suffering from rare neurological conditions. With our promise of lifelong care, we strive to provide our patients with the best treatment and research opportunities, and help them become active participants in their care.

Each patient and condition is different and we practice personalized medicine to approach and treat each case in an individualized manner. Our Rare Disease clinics offer comprehensive and multidisciplinary access to expert clinicians and researchers in a broad range or rare conditions. Finally, though close partnerships with patient advocacy groups, we strive to empower our patients and build a sense of community in the rare diseases.
