The ALS Clinic at Erlanger is one of three multi-disciplinary ALS clinics in Tennessee, and the only one in East Tennessee. A multi-disciplinary approach means our clinic brings together a team of healthcare professionals specially trained to address the needs of people living with ALS, allowing them to receive care from each discipline during a single visit. The Erlanger care team includes the region’s only board-certified neuromuscular physician, a physical therapist, occupational therapist, respiratory therapist, neuropsychologist, nurse, speech language pathologist, and an ALS Association chapter liaison.

The ALS Clinic at Erlanger meets on the third Tuesday of each month. In order to establish care in the ALS Clinic at Erlanger, physician referral is required.
