Dr. B. was the lead on a team of neuro experts who tested and evaluated my neurological health, to determine if I was suffering from early cognitive impairment (answer: no!). I was so impressed by the team of people who interviewed and tested me. After a couple of months of sleep study, sleep psychologist, neuro psychiatrist, I circled back around to Dr. B. for a final evaluation. I'm happy to report that there were no signs of cognitive impairment, and I am glad that we now have a baseline against which to evaluate my neuro functioning as I move further into old age. (My father was diagnosed with, and died of, Alzheimer's.)
