Diagnosis & Treatment for Memory Loss
Memory-related symptoms need prompt professional medical attention. The earlier the cause for a memory problem is identified, the sooner treatment can begin. Proper diagnosis of the type of dementia or other cause of memory loss requires evaluation by specialists.
The team specializes in diagnosing uncommon and difficult-to-diagnose cases of dementia. Team members care for patients throughout their illness and also help family members cope with new challenges.
Patients have access to the latest advances in the prevention, assessment and treatment of memory disorders, including the latest medications.
