Neuropsychological Evaluation

A neuropsychological evaluation can help confirm or clarify a diagnosis; help your physician develop a comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation plan and/or establish a baseline of brain functioning prior to brain surgery or beginning a new medication or treatment.

During your evaluation, our team will assess your emotional and behavioral functioning. And evaluate a number of cognitive skills, such as attention, executive functioning, memory, language and visuospatial processing, using a variety of standardized written or computerized tests.
