TSC Clinics

The TS Alliance supports the vital role that a tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) clinic can play in improving the lives of those affected. The TS Alliance provides a link to a TSC Clinic’s website, if available. Please contact the TSC Clinic or go to its website for details about their specialists, clinic services, billing and insurance, which are subject to change without notice.  

TSC Clinic Experience of Care Survey

The TS Alliance would like to know about your experience at the TSC Clinic you/your child go to for care.  Your comments in this online survey will be shared with the TSC Clinic Director and staff.  The 5-minute 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 the TSC Clinic. If you have any questions, contact Jo Anne Nakagawa at jnakagawa@tsalliance.org.
