Dr. Aaron Boster, founder of The Boster Center for Multiple Sclerosis, is a board-certified neurologist specializing in multiple sclerosis and related central nervous system inflammatory disorders.

Dr. Boster grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and attended Oberlin College. He earned his M.D. at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and completed an internship in internal medicine and a residency in neurology at the University of Michigan.

He lives in Columbus, Ohio, with his wife Krissy, son Maxwell, and daughter Betty Mae.
