Outpatient Neuropsychological Assessment
Once referred by your neurologist or other physician, we conduct a detailed assessment to understand your cognitive functioning, causes for cognitive or memory difficulties, and design a treatment plan with strategies to manage your cognitive symptoms.
This is an innovative initiative designed to help prevent or reduce one’s risk of cognitive decline. The initiative consists of a series of seminars or “talks” designed to help individuals learn about risk factors (e.g., poor diet, stress) to cause cognitive problems and engage in activities that promote long term brain health.
Talk with your doctor about how you can participate in this program.
