Your safety is our first concern, so we continue to implement comprehensive safety protocols to reduce spread of COVID-19. If you have been ill or in contact with someone who has been ill with COVID19 symptoms, including cough, shortness of breath, fever, and new loss of taste or smell, you will be asked to reschedule. Everyone involved with the evaluation will be wearing masks for the duration of the face-to-face encounter, and our providers will be wearing face shields. We thank you for your patience and welcome your questions about the protocols.
We will tailor your evaluation to fit your needs. Most evaluations involve two to three visits during which we will discuss your background and medical, psychological, and functional status. Depending on your age and condition, a thorough neuropsychological evaluation will be conducted on the same day or will be scheduled for an upcoming day. During the neuropsychological evaluation, a series of tests of thinking skills, including memory, attention, reaction time, language, and visual perception, will be administered. Emotional functioning will also be assessed. Some of the tests will be paper-pencil, some computer-based, and some question-answer. Once the tests are completed, your results will be incorporated with your medical records and pertinent background information to develop working diagnoses and helpful recommendations for improving quality of life and daily functioning. These results will then be discussed with you and your referral source in the form of a comprehensive report and face-to-face feedback, depending on your needs.
