Patient Resources

A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis affects more than just one’s body

That's why at Steward® MS Services we have developed a wide range of patient programs and services, all staffed by MS-certified professionals and support staff, who can help you and your family through the journey of living with multiple sclerosis (MS).

In addition to our clinical care team, both the MS Center at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center and Norwood Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Institute, provide an onsite social worker to help patients manage their emotional needs at every step.

Referral Information

How do I obtain a referral

If your insurance is an HMO, you will need a referral for your visit. A referral should be obtained from you Primary Care Physician (PCP) prior to the date of your appointment with a doctor at Steward MS Services.

The information we will require from your PCP includes:

  • A referral number
  • The dates that the referral covers
  • Number of visits allowed (please ask your doctor to make the referral for a number of visits)

If you will be a patient at the MS Center at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, your doctor's office can communicate your referral number to us by calling 617-789-7781 or by fax at 617-789-5177. For the Norwood Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Institute, your doctor can call 781-551-5812.

Once the referral is received, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment.

What to bring to your first appointment:

  • Pertinent medical records, including physician notes, lab results, MRI findings and test results
  • MRI films - please bring the actual CD with you if possible
  • A referral if you have HMO insurance
  • Your co pay, if one is required by your insurance

The following are helpful forms for Norwood Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Institute patients.
