Are our services appropriate for you or your patient?
Neuropsychological evaluation can be helpful for many patients. It is most helpful and appropriate for patients with known or suspected brain-related conditions. Such conditions include dementia (Alzheimerís Disease, Vascular Dementia, Parkinsonís Disease), traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumor, toxic or other encephalopathy, developmental and learning disabilities, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. Neuropsychological assessment is also helpful for patients with systemic conditions that affect brain function such as diabetes, hypertension, toxic/metabolic disorders, and alcoholism. The evaluation provides information about problems with memory, intellectual and cognitive functioning, daily activities, or behavior and emotions. Neuropsychological assessment is helpful in determining the differential contribution of neurologic and psychiatric factors in a patient's presenting problems, and in the specification of the patient's psychological and behavioral strengths and weaknesses related to neurological dysfunction.
Scheduling an Evaluation
To schedule an evaluation, please call the office: 214-373-3607. The phone is answered during business hours, but messages can be left at any time. We will schedule your appointment as soon as possible. However, if you wish to have your insurance accepted as full or partial payment, then we will need to confirm your coverage before you come in.
We accept most insurance coverage, including Medicare. However, for some insurance companies, the coverage will be at your OUT-of-Network rates. We can help you to determine what your coverage will be. If there is no in-network provider in your area, your insurance company may agree to cover our services at your in-network rate.
