The Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Center of Dallas is part of the National MS Society and offers a detailed program for the evaluation and treatment of multiple sclerosis. Dr. Annette F. Okai manages all stages of multiple sclerosis, and her care philosophy includes using a multidisciplinary approach to patient management.

Dr. Okai focuses on addressing the physical, emotional, cognitive, and rehabilitation needs of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patient and their family. We offer a comprehensive program for the evaluation and treatment of MS which includes using several strategies to determine if a patient meets the long-established criteria for a diagnosis of MS and ruling out other possible causes of patient symptoms.

Treatment Strategies Include:

  • Detailed Neurologic Exam

  • Appropriate Medication

What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving hope to people affected by the disease.
