Basalt neurologist receives National MS Society’s MS Partner in Care designation
Aspen Daily News BUSINESS BRIEFS
November 3, 2014
Dr. Alison “Brooke” Allen, neurologist and owner of Roaring Fork Neurology, PC and Mountain Neurological Research Center in Basalt has been designated a Partner in MS Care- Neurologic Care by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. This designation recognizes exceptional commitment to MS patient care and the need for patients to have access to a neurologist with current knowledge and experience treating MS. Allen is the first physician in the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter area to attain this recognition and is the Society’s first Partner in MS Care on the Western Slope.
Program partners include health care professionals in the areas of neurology, mental heath and rehabilitation, in addition to health centers that provide multi-disciplinary health care. Partners have demonstrated knowledge and experience in MS care and have a special interest in treating people living with this disease that attacks the central nervous system, impacting vision, cognition and mobility, depending on where the nerve damage occurs.
“Dr. Allen looks at all issues, such as general health, chronic MS symptoms, fatigue, pain and cognition, and will make referrals to the Chapter to ensure that the patient receives the help and resources needed in areas such as financial counseling, education, and connections to additional community services,” said Colorado-Wyoming Chapter President Carrie Nolan. “Having her expertise available to patients in Basalt and surrounding communities, and on the Western Slope is an invaluable asset.”
Allen opened her neurology practice in 2010 and has partnered with allied professionals including a nutritionist, physical therapist and a local mental health specialist to address the complex and diverse needs of MS patients.
