The TSC Alliance supports the vital role a tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) clinic can play in improving the lives of TSC patients. Use the resources below to find a TSC clinic near you.

The TSC Alliance has offered TSC Clinic designations to the institutions listed below in order to help serve as a resource for the TSC community to identify where comprehensive clinical care for people with TSC is available. The TSC Alliance does not accredit any TSC Clinic or TSC Center of Excellence, and the TSC Alliance does not directly provide or guide any clinical care or medical decision-making. None of the information provided by TSC Alliance, including the identification of TSC Clinics or TSC Centers of Excellence, is intended as medical advice and should not be relied upon as a substitute for professional consultation with a qualified healthcare provider familiar with a patient’s medical needs. The identification of a TSC Clinic or Center of Excellence does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement of any provider of medical care. It is important to check with your insurance carrier about in-service providers before starting care.

Please email clinicconcerns@tscalliance.org or call (240) 463-7250 to report any problems you encounter with the contact information posted below.

Current standards for TSC Clinics and TSC Centers of Excellence 

The TSC Alliance is in the process of phasing in new TSC Clinic Standards in early 2024.

Questions? Contact Ashley Pounders at apounders@tscalliance.org.

TSC Clinic experience of care survey

The TSC Alliance would like to know about your experience at the TSC Clinic you/your child go to for care. The survey is anonymous; your answers will not be linked to any information that can identify you. We invite you to complete this survey any time after you’ve been to a recognized clinic or center of excellence. If you have any questions, contact Ashley Pounders at apounders@tscalliance.org.
