Jeffrey Gross, MD, is a neurologist and multiple sclerosis (MS) specialist who uses the latest advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.
He describes his field as “inherently interesting and rapidly evolving.” An example is electromyography (EMG), a diagnostic procedure used to assess the health of muscles and nerve cells. He says, “My best days at work are when I think I have had a positive impact on a patient. It can be a therapeutic or diagnostic success or just helping the patient understand and cope better with their condition.”
Dr. Gross has been a principal investigator in many MS pharmaceutical trials and clinical trials for other neurological conditions. Before joining Yale Medicine, he was chief of neurology at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport and served on the board of directors of the Connecticut chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for many years.
He puts his patients at ease by talking and listening to them. “There is no one thing I say, but I think they are reassured when I convey that I care about their concerns and that I will try to use all available resources for their care and treatment,” he says.
