Our neuropsychologists specialize in evaluating how brain and nervous system conditions affect thinking abilities and behaviors. We perform detailed evaluations and recommend therapies and support services to help you or your loved one live as independently as possible.
We help people whose thinking abilities, such as memory concerns, and other behaviors have been impacted by conditions affecting the brain:
- Traumatic brain injury, which occurs when a jolt to the head damages brain tissue.
- Dementia, which is a type of brain disease with symptoms such as confusion that worsens over time.
