I am writing to introduce myself and my practice, AAMG Neuropsychology Specialists, as a new resource for your respective practices. The focus of my practice is assessment of acquired cognitive impairment or cognitive complaints in the context of established medical and neurologic illness. Referrals most commonly involve:
- Differential diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment, other memory disorders and dementias
- Characterization of cognitive impairment in the context of:
- Stroke or other cerebrovascular conditions
- Parkinson’s disease or other movement disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Cancer, both brain and non-brain
- Traumatic brain injury
- Cardiovascular disease/diabetes
- Post-surgical cognitive changes
My practice is limited to adults/geriatrics ages 18 and up. Referral questions regarding new-onset or acquired cognitive impairment, meaning that when the referral reason is developmentally focused (e.g., learning disability, ADHD, autism, or pervasive developmental disorders) or psychiatrically focused (e.g., differential diagnosis of personality or psychiatric disorder), these referrals are best directed to a pediatric/lifespan neuropsychologist or general clinical psychologist, respectively. Below I have listed resources for both of these referral types:
- Pediatric neuropsychologist:
- Kennedy Krieger Neuropsychology Department: 443-923-9400. Locations in Columbia and Baltimore.
- Thinking Tree Psychology: 443-906-1132. Located in Severna Park, does not accept insurance.
- General clinical psychologist and lifespan neuropsychologist:
- PsychCare Psychological Services: BaltimorePsychologist.com. Locations in Columbia, Silver Spring and Baltimore.
I look forward to assisting with any patients you send my way. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at email@example.com or 443-481-1994.
