Before Your Appointment
Prepare for your visit by getting a good's night rest. Bring a family member to your first appointment if possible so they can provide another perspective on your cognitive strengths and challenges.
Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to allow for parking, finding our office, and finishing filling out forms.
Bring the following items with you:
Your insurance cards
A photo ID, like your driver’s license
A list of all medications you currently take, both prescription and over-the-counter
Glasses and/or hearing aids if you wear them
Forms we sent you or those you need us to review or fill out
During Your Appointment
We will begin by completing a full neuropsychological interview to review your medical history and talk about your current situation, including cognitive concerns. Dr. Naber will ask about your background and history to get to know you better.
If further evaluation is appropriate, we will perform various tests to check your cognitive, emotional, and psychological functioning. None of these tests are invasive. Most people enjoy the process, which includes a number of verbal, written, and other tasks. You are encouraged to ask questions if anything is unclear.
Testing will be completed immediately after the interview or at a separate follow up appointment depending on insurance requirements and availability.
After Your Appointment
We will contact you when your test results have been compiled and analyzed. Dr. Naber will prepare a report integrating test data, background history, and other medical information.
We usually schedule a follow up visit to fully discuss the results and next steps. We want you to feel part of this process, so come to this visit ready to discuss questions and concerns you may have.
