Our Process

Neuropsychological assessments are done in 3 easy steps:

  1. Interview – Patient and family members meet with Dr. Heinrichs and background information is gathered. 

  2. Testing – Interactive appointment with a staff member during which the patient completes a variety of tasks that help us assess their cognitive abilities.

  3. Feedback – Patient and family meet with Dr. Heinrichs and discuss results. Recommendations are made and a written report is sent to the referring provider and whomever else the patient requests.

During the feedback step, Dr. Heinrichs will meet with the patient and any family members or caregivers and provide support and input about daily functioning to ensure their loved one’s safety and wellbeing.

Recommendations will be made as needed regarding the patient’s ability to drive, live independently, manage their finances, and make reasoned decisions regarding healthcare and finances.

Have you noticed a change in your memory or other cognitive functioning?

We all change as we age, and many people reach a point where they wonder if their cognition is normal, or if they are experiencing a type of neurodegenerative disease.

 

It's important to take action now to identify any such disease early. This will allow individuals and their families to maximize their current and future functioning, and appropriately plan for the future.

 

Dr. Robin Heinrichs has worked with patients and their families for 15 years, helping to ensure the wellbeing and safety of her patients. She'll help you answer commonly asked questions such as:

  • Is your forgetting or personality change just part of normal aging or is there another cause?   

  • If you have cognitive impairment, what is causing the change?

  • How can you best work around current cognitive impairment to maximize your safety and wellbeing?

  • With cognitive impairment, what should you and your family expect in the future?

  • If impairment is present, what type of assistance is needed to help you be as independent as possible while keeping you and others around you safe?

Dr. Robin Heinrichs works to answer these questions, providing assistance to her patients and their families on staying as independent as possible while ensuring safety.
