Neuropsychology

Neuropsychology is a healthcare specialty that includes the assessment and treatment of brain injuries and cognitive diseases. Our neuropsychologists provide a personalized plan of care for patients suffering from trauma, sports-related concussions, dementia and other cognitive impairments.

Patients who develop a cognitive disease or experience an injury to the brain, spine or nerves may suddenly find themselves also coping with a decline in their mental health.

Concussions, brain diseases and other conditions can have a significant impact on overall health, which makes neuropsychology an important part of the healing process.
