The Regional Health Neuropsychology department is comprised of two Clinical Neuropsychologists and two master’s level Clinical Social Workers who see both inpatients and outpatients. Our Neuropsychologists provide evaluations and communicate the results to your referring doctor — to help them understand how an injury or illness may have affected your brain. Our Clinical Social Workers provide therapy to patients with chronic pain and other medical conditions.
Neuropsychological evaluations gather information about how well your brain is working and how that affects your functioning. They typically take several hours and involve sitting at a desk with the Neuropsychologist, answering questions and doing puzzles or surveys. There is no physical examination and no MRI or other imaging.
