AIN Cognitive Assessment Center
The AIN Cognitive Assessment Center offers a comprehensive evaluation of patients exhibiting signs of cognitive impairment. This is especially important since early diagnosis and treatment can assist in delaying the progression of dementia. Under the direction of board-certified neurologist Nader Warra, DO, we conduct detailed evaluations and address concerns about all forms of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.
The skilled AIN team will develop personalized treatment options and a patient plan of care designed to improve quality of life. The goal of the AIN Cognitive Assessment Center is to educate the patient and family by connecting them with resources that support the plan of care and provide them with peace of mind.
What to Expect
We understand that many of our patients are new to receiving a cognitive assessment and are unsure what they can expect from their appointments. Our ultimate goal in performing your assessment is to proactively diagnose and treat any conditions that may cause cognitive decline, including Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
We put together a list of steps you can expect to take during your cognitive assessment with our expert and skilled physicians. These steps include what you can expect during your initial visit and care planning process, as well as the importance of patient education throughout the process.
