I worked for the MS center of Atlanta with Dr William Stuart. Best job I have ever had. He is such a kind and gentle man and just a wealth of information. I learned so much working there. I truly miss all of the employees and patients there.

I have been a patient at the MS Center of Atlanta since they opened in 2001. I was a patient of Dr. William Stuart at the Shepherd Center starting in 1996. The MSCA is like a family, from the front desk, to the MRI staff, to the nursing staff, to the research department. My experience with the MSCA has exceeded my expectations.

I was so fortunate to be one of the first patients in the US to receive Tysabri through the research department of the MSCA. I have been impressed by the research staff. They made me feel valued as a volunteer over the 20 years that I have been in the study.

I highly recommend the MSCA for anyone who has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis as this is the primary area of concentration of the doctors and staff at this facility.

After suffering for many years with what I call a variety of odd symptoms, Dr. Jay Singh recommended I get an appt with Dr. Douglas Stuart, they both saved my life. I was treated with respect, and finally diagnosed, and was able to get some control of my life again. Yes, it's still a rough journey, but I feel like they improved my outlook in a manner I was able to understand and work with on a day-to-day basis. I owe great gratitude to the Multiple Sclerosis Center of Atlanta, and Dr. D. Stuart and his Awesome Staff For all they do. Please Donate if you can, they do a lot for as many people as possible with what you share with them!

After a ten year search for answers to my symptoms a friend referred me to Dr. Douglas Stewart. Right from the time I entered the building, the staff and everyone was so nice, and caring, and accommodating. I got much needed answers, treatment, and validation for al, I had been enduring over the years. In fact, on my first visit when I finally got some direction and testing set up I felt such a wave of relief and validation that as soon as Dr. Stewart left the room I cried…tears of relief that FINALLY someone heard me and was going to act on my behalf. I RECOMMEND HIGHLY going here! You will not be disappointed!
