The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Greater Washington
Health Care the way you imagined
In addition to providing you with the care you deserve, the Center is involved in the latest Multiple Sclerosis research. Along with familiar disease modifying options, there are new innovative therapies being developed. The MS Center is actively participating in these new treatments, and often has them available as clinical trials for patients. By offering these clinical trials to our patients, we are expanding their treatment options.
The management of MS involves decreasing signs of disease progression, in addition to treating the day to day symptoms that affect a person’s quality of life. Successful Multiple Sclerosis therapy involves traveling down both of these paths and receiving guidance to do so. The menu of options for the treatment of MS has become increasingly more complex, and you deserve a personalized care plan that fits your MS and you.
In our infusion suite, you will find a relaxed, friendly environment. What you do with that time is up to you: finish up work with complimentary Wi-Fi, catch up on your reading, watch a movie from our DVD selection (or bring your own) or nap. Know that you are in good hands.
|MSAA Merges MRI Programs into the
MRI Access Fund
For more than 12 years, MSAA has successfully operated two programs that provide magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams for individuals who need assistance to confirm a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis or track its disease progression. Through the expansion of new corporate support, MSAA has been able to combine the MRI Diagnostic and Institute programs into one service as well as increase the number of clients served in 2015.
Although the name has changed to the MRI Access Fund, the program will operate in the same manner – assisting people who do not have adequate insurance coverage or the financial means necessary to acquire a cranial MRI. Through the MRI Access Fund:
Having MS for me is like being in a constricting tube with no light at either end and all alone. But then came light, presence with understanding and methods to find wiggleroom in my tube. All came in a friendly, straight shooting, loving and compassionate package labled Dr. Hiedi Crayton. I thank God and my wife for leading me to Dr. Crayton.
Dr Crayton exemplifies the essence of a healthcare professional. We feel her passion about multiple sclerosis each and every time we visit her office. Even though there is no cure for MS, Dr Crayton always have something new to share with us to make the life journey with MS more manageable. Her energy and dedication is so important to patients and their families when living with a chronic illness. We always leave her office with more than a prescription to get filled. Thank you Dr. Crayton for giving so much to your patients and their families.
I often joke that I would walk through Hell itself for Dr. Crayton and the Reason I can walk at all is BECAUSE of her.
Best care and nicest bunch of people ever! This is a doctor visit to look forward to. Questions are answered, concerns are discussed, and you feel completely taken care of.
Dr Crayton is the best, most down to earth and caring doctor I have ever had! Everyone in her office is super friendly. They listen to what you have to say, and are always super helpful! It doesn't feel like going to a doctors office when I go for my appointments... So much nicer than your usual doctors office!
