The ALS Clinic at Erlanger is one of three multi-disciplinary ALS clinics in Tennessee, and the only one in East Tennessee.

The Erlanger care team includes:

  • The region’s only board-certified neuromuscular physicians
  • A Physical therapist
  • An occupational therapist
  • A respiratory therapist
  • A speech language pathologist
  • A clinical dietician
  • A neuropsychologist
  • A social worker
  • A nurse
  • 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.
