Abstract

With the incidence of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) increasing over recent decades, wide variability in disease presentation, and a median survival of only 2 to 4 years from disease onset, timely referral is key for patients with suspected ALS. This article discusses primary care providers' roles in recognizing ALS and managing symptoms in patients whose travel to specialists can become restricted in the later stages of the disease.
