The clinic is directed by Marek-Marsel Mesulam, MD, and includes specialists from a wide variety of disciplines including neurology, neuropsychology, geriatrics, neuropsychiatry and social work. We typically evaluate and care for people with memory concerns, Alzheimer’s disease, primary progressive aphasia, frontotemporal dementia, corticobasal degeneration and progressive supranuclear palsy, posterior cortical atrophy, vascular dementia, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, and dementia with Lewy bodies. Our program is geared toward supporting both patients and their families so they can meet the challenges of cognitive change and achieve a better quality of life.
