"Let's Find the Cause of Your Losses in Memory and Thinking
So That You Can Live Your Life Up to Your Full Potential"

Not Like It Used To Be

I forget the names of people I’ve known for years. In the middle of talking to someone, I forget what I want to say.

I Get So Confused

Like, did I take my medicine this morning? I just can’t remember. Everyone is upset with me, but I can’t help it.

It's 3 a.m. and I Can't Sleep

For so long I’ve been so worried about my parents. The whole family is so concerned about their problems with memory and thinking.

I'm Concerned

I’ve known this couple for many years and lately they’ve changed. They’ve stopped going to church activities and they get lost driving.

Treatment Support

It’s past time that these patients undergo more testing than I can provide. I need help figuring out what is going on.

Evaluation


Dr. Ferneyhough provides a full service neuropsychology practice. A neuropsychological evaluation is warranted for individuals who have losses in memory and problems with their thinking (language, learning, organization, perception, coordination, or personality).  These symptoms can be due to a variety of medical, neurological, psychological, or genetic causes.  Examples of these conditions include: stroke, brain trauma, dementia (such as Alzheimer’s disease), seizures, toxic exposures, or an illness that increases the chance of brain injury (such as diabetes or alcoholism).

A neuropsychological evaluation can reveal abnormalities or even subtle
differences in brain functioning that may not be detected by others means. For example, neuropsychological testing can help determine if a person’s memory changes represent the normal aging process or if they signify a neurological disorder (such as Alzheimer’s disease).
