APPOINTMENTS & REFERRALS
Are our services appropriate for you or your patient?
Neuropsychological evaluation can be helpful for many patients. It is most helpful and appropriate for patients with known or suspected brain-related conditions. Such conditions include dementia (Alzheimer’s Disease, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease), traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumor, toxic or other encephalopathy, developmental and learning disabilities, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. Neuropsychological assessment is also helpful for patients with systemic conditions that affect brain function such as diabetes, hypertension, toxic/metabolic disorders, and alcoholism.
The evaluation provides information about problems with memory, intellectual and cognitive functioning, daily activities, or behavior and emotions. Neuropsychological assessment is helpful in determining the differential contribution of neurologic and psychiatric factors in a patient's presenting problems, and in the specification of the patient's psychological and behavioral strengths and weaknesses related to neurological dysfunction. Information from the neuropsychological assessment will be helpful in making decisions regarding rehabilitation, employment, and independent living.Request an evaluation or Make a referral
