Neuropsychological Assessment of Adults

A neuropsychological assessment involves a brief telephone intake, a clinical interview with Dr. Wilson, a review of medical and other records related to the reason for referral, neuropsychological testing, personal communication with physicians and/or therapists (as deemed necessary), and a feedback meeting to review assessment results. The evaluation will also include a thorough examination of issues that could be impacting job performance and social and professional functioning. After reviewing and analyzing assessment results, Dr. Wilson will then write a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment report, which will include impressions and recommendations for treatment interventions.
