Programs:

The Myasthenia Gravis Treatment & Advocacy Center aims to provide the best medical care, in one central location, from health care professionals who specialize in MG. The neurologists who staff the Treatment Center are experts in MG and they guide the patient’s entire treatment which can include: medication, surgery, plasmapheresis, and other therapies.

The Center offers patient-centered care coordination provided primarily through a Nurse. The nurse is accessible to all patients and is capable of answering questions, resolving medical problems. She also facilitates patient assistance programs (prescriptions, transportation, etc); addresses general concerns; manages the Treatment Center schedule; coordinates the patient’s care with his/her PCP, Endocrinologist, Rheumatologist, and other health care providers; as well as preauthorizing testing and prescriptions with third party vendors including insurancecompanies, Medicare and Medicaid.

Mission:
MGA of WPA addresses the medical, social and emotional needs of persons affected by Myasthenia Gravis and disseminates educational information to persons with Myasthenia Gravis, their families, the medical community and the general public.
