Through Feinberg-affiliated care site, our faculty members see patients with a variety of neuromuscular conditions, including ALS, frontotemporal dementia and ALS (ALS/FTD), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), spinal muscular atrophy, the hereditary spastic parapareses (HSP), the muscular dystrophies, peripheral neuropathies, myasthenia gravis, autonomic disorders, and muscle diseases in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. In the ALS and MDA multidisciplinary care clinics, there is close collaboration with colleagues in pulmonology and sleep medicine, speech pathology, neuropsychology, and others to provide optimal care for patients with these diseases.

It was established in 1986 with funds from the James V. Insolia family and the Les Turner ALS Foundation.
- The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Clinic uses also a multidisciplinary team approach to patients with diverse neuromuscular diagnoses since 1992.
- The Peripheral Neuropathy Clinic that started in 2005, provides excellent compassionate care to patients with all sorts of peripheral nervous system disorders.
- The NM electrodiagnostic testing center includes an AANEM-accredited nerve conduction and electromyography suite as well as an autonomic laboratory dedicated to the diagnosis of neuromuscular and autonomic disorders.
