About Our Office


CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:  We are watching regional and national developments in the Coronavirus news.  Physicians who are working with this virus in the early affected areas of the country where COVID-19 has already made appearance are warning that this is a new virus that is extremely dangerous.  There are no effective treatments, and some patients transition quickly from looking fine to nearly dying.  In an effort to keep from overloading the medical system, these physicians are recommending that we all do our part to slow the spread of the virus throughout the country.  The best way to do this is to strictly isolate ourselves from each other for two weeks.  Groceries and pharmacy are ok, but otherwise no social interactions, gatherings, church, movies - nothing that involves anyone outside of your immediate household.  Review the video General Information about MS and COVID here (skip to 2:00 to pass over the setup glitches):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TibLVfTFr4

We are recommending that patients who are due to receive Tysabri before April 30 hold off for two weeks on their infusions.  Patients on Ocrevus we recommend making a phone or video appointmet to discuss options, as we recommend holding off for two MONTHS to allow the immune system to better fight COVID in the event of an infection.  Patients taking non-MS medications or Tecfidera, Aubagio, Gilenya, Copaxone, or an injectable interferon should continue taking their medications on schedule.

In an effort to help with the quarantine recommendation to reduce spread of the virus, we are closed for the next SIX WEEKS and possibly longer as we watch and reassess the situation.  Patients who have a scheduled appointment during that time will be called to offer appointment rescheduling options..  We will take off phone messages once a day and return them the next day.  The best way to reach us will be through our online portal, as we are working from home to meet your needs.  For more information about the virus and its impact in our community, Dr. Cramer has posted several public posts on Facebook.

The following videos that explain how to use our portal and online telehealth appointments:
