Comprehensive Diagnostic Assessments

For some patients, typical acute inpatient and outpatient treatment options may not be able to get to the root of the issues. Whether the individual is stabilized after their first behavioral crisis or has struggled with long-standing mental illness, an accurate diagnosis is essential to establishing an effective treatment plan. In addition, a solid foundation in clinical skill development is also crucial to being able to build a realistic future focus and better life.

Sports-Related Head Injury
Concussions and other sports-related brain injuries place some athletes at high risk for further injury and lasting cognitive impairment. We offer evaluations that include recommended baseline cognitive functioning tests, monitor a player post-injury, and assist in making sometimes difficult return-to-play decisions.

Neurocognitive Disorders & Aging
Changes in cognitive abilities become a prominent concern with age, and early and accurate diagnosis of neurocognitive disorders is increasingly important. Comprehensive neuropsychological assessments help detect cognitive impairment and memory decline associated with normal aging as well as Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias and stroke. These evaluations also inform treatment strategies that can enhance quality of life.
