As we age, many of us develop concerns about our memory, especially when it comes to figuring out what are normal “senior moments” versus what may be the beginning of a more serious memory disorder. Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are progressive neurodegenerative diseases that usually start off slowly and worsen over time, destroying memory and other mental functions.

Overview and Symptoms

These diseases include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Vascular impairment
  • Frontotemporal disorders

We apply the latest behavioral, genetic and imaging tests to diagnose and treat a wide range of memory problems. We can reassure those whose memory issues are solely related to aging, and we can use the latest and most advanced treatments to help those with more significant memory impairment. 


We employ effective behavioral, lifestyle and medication regimens to treat a range of issues, from mild memory symptoms to severe disorders. Our multidisciplinary team of cognitive neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists and social workers work together to perform a comprehensive evaluation and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
