Together, We Are Stronger

At PNI, MS Specialist Barbara Giesser, MD, FAAN, FANA, cares for persons with Multiple Sclerosis by combining state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments with evidence-based recommendations for lifestyle practices. This comprehensive strategy treats the whole person, with the goal of controlling disease activity while optimizing function and quality of life.
