About Us

Waiting area of the Maxine Mesinger Multiple Sclerosis Clinic

The Maxine Mesinger Multiple Sclerosis Clinic, part of the Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center in the Department of Neurology, occupies 5,500 square feet on the first floor of the Neurosensory Building of Houston Methodist Hospital.

Under the direction of Victor M. Rivera, M.D., medical director, this patient-friendly, easy access, diagnostic and treatment clinic brings a variety of specialist caregivers to MS patients, offering a complete range of services in a single location.

The clinic is named in honor of Maxine Mesinger, a Houston Chronicle columnist who had MS and died from unrelated causes in 2001.

The center also contains a research unit, is actively involved in an outreach program, and, in addition to its affiliation with the National MS Society, is a member of The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers.
