Cognitive disorders are neurological conditions that affect thinking, memory, behavior, mood and personality.
Correctly selected lab tests allow us to fully address the needs of each patient. As a new patient, appointments usually include:
An initial visit, about 90 to 120 minutes, where Dr. Schechterman will review your symptoms, history, and perform a general exam. From these results, selected diagnostic tests are usually ordered for your second appointment.
You and Dr. S. will work together to complete a variety of non-invasive diagnostic tests (paper, pencil, other) that assess your neurogeriatric health. We'll look for patterns of strengths and weaknesses that will assist in diagnosis and treatment decisions.
Finally, Dr. S. will review your test results and provide a diagnosis and treatment plan. Results detail strengths which are used to compensate for any deficits. Treatment recommendations will be coordinated with your Primary Care and/or Referring doctor and may include subspecialty clinicians such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and/or geriatric medicine.
Depending on treatment options, you may also meet with Dr. S. for continued care. Lots of folks, and family members, wish to continue!
