For Patients, Caregivers, and Families

As a patient- and caregiver-founded company, we know the toll a diagnosis like this takes on a family. Synapticure was built with these challenges in mind and is equipped to provide the support caregivers and patients need. And, as a virtual care organization, we have designed our care around your needs.

It’s the first time that a neurologist listened to me and saw me! I am so grateful and excited about working with the doctor and Synapticure I am also much more optimistic–like a new lease on life.

Dr. Geraldi was very thorough and gave good advice which I will for sure follow. She seemed to be on the cutting edge on how best to fight the progression of ALS!!
