Memory Disorders Care

Our Approach

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia take a toll on patients and their families, who often struggle to assemble the expertise and resources they need to meet the challenges neurodegenerative diseases bring. At Augusta University, we offer a unique opportunity for patients in the Augusta, GA and surrounding areas to have a complete memory evaluation through our Memory Disorders Clinic as well as participate in clinical trails developing new therapies for patients with memory loss.

Patients are first evaluated,and when appropriate, further testing will be ordered, including:

  • Labwork
  • Brain Imaging with MRI, CT, or PET scan
  • Cognitive assessment with our Neuropsychologist, Dr. Kelly Stanek

These studies help guide our clinical assessment and diagnosis. When the studies are complete, patients will again meet with the doctor to discuss test results, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations. If patients qualify for a clinical trial and are interested in participating, we will also discuss this at their return visit.
