Specialized Evaluation and Treatment of Brain Function
Our fellowship-trained neuropsychologists specialize in assessing and understanding brain-altering conditions that can affect behavior, thinking and mood. We can help confirm or clarify a diagnosis, help your provider develop a comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation plan and establish a baseline of brain functioning prior to brain surgery. Our skilled team offers evaluations that use a variety of standardized neuropsychological and psychological assessments to determine your current cognitive, emotional and behavioral functioning. This includes attention, memory, language, visuospatial processing, and more. The evaluations use a variety of written, oral and/or computerized tests. The assessment is conducted over three appointments and the patient will receive a comprehensive report with a detailed explanation of their results at the final appointment.
Our team also provides cognitive rehabilitation treatment planning for patients recovering from moderate to severe brain injuries.
