What Patients & Doctors Are Saying

"The bottom line is first impressions.  How MS is presented to a patient at the beginning is so critical because it sets the tone for the whole rest of the disease."
– Dr. Carlo Tornatore, Director of the MS Center at Georgetown University

"Since I was diagnosed with MS 10 months ago, a friend of mine has been telling me that I should go to TurnFirst. Until recently, I was not ready to admit that I am part of the MS bubble. When I went to the computer, I was a drawn into the website and minutes turned into hours as I browsed and became utterly impressed with the dynamic site you created and your drive to do something as important as creating a reliable medium not only for MS patients, but others also affected. I told my family to look at your website and little did I know that they had already browsed it. Apparently, both my sister and mother's friends raved about turnfirst.org and insisted they log on. It just so comforting knowing someone has been in the same, or at least very similar, spot as I am now and has come out the other side on her own terms of how she will let MS affect her. I am in awe of the manner you've achieved that.  I cannot thank you enough for being an inspiration for people like me.”

“I wanted you to know that I diagnosed a young girl two weeks ago and had her make a pact with me that this would be the only site on the Internet that she went to. It has been really helpful to her.  Great job!”
Dr. Heidi Crayton, MS Center of Washington

“Turnfirst.org is an excellent information resource for those who are recently diagnosed with MS...a way to weed through the overwhelming amount of information that the Internet leads us to. This is a much needed resource.”

“I told [my physical therapist] about turnfirst.org and this afternoon she told me that with all the websites out there she explores for degenerative, spasms-based diseases, TurnFirst is the best privately founded one she has ever found! I just wanted to share that.”

“I've been looking over the TurnFirst site and just wanted to say that I really like it and think you're doing a great job of putting together real information and support. I got sick with what now appears to be my first MS attack when I was 11 but was not diagnosed until 18 and now I am nearly 24 with MS but I don't let any of it get me down or crush my spirit. Thanks for doing this site for all of us MSers out there.”
