Brain and Spine
If you (or your family) are concerned about your memory or thinking skills, it may be time for a visit to the Memory Center. Our highly specialized team provides comprehensive care for neurodegenerative conditions for people of all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics.
We start with a thorough evaluation that helps us uncover all possible causes of memory or behavioral problems. Cognition disorders often affect memory, but they can also cause problems with talking, navigating your daily activities or even behavior. Many people experience normal changes of cognition as they age; others may have mild cognitive impairment or even a more serious brain disorder.
You'll start the process by meeting with David Gill, MD, the Medical Director of the Memory Center, and the only neurologist in the area who is board certified in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry. Dr. Gill leads a team that includes highly trained neurologists, neuropsychologists, nurse practitioners, social workers and specialized nurses.
Being part of a well-respected health system also allows us to collaborate with other medical providers such as geriatricians, psychiatrists, cognitive and physical therapists, palliative care experts, senior community support agencies and living services.
We focus on providing high-quality services and compassionate patient care. You'll also find us to be friendly, flexible and approachable.
After your comprehensive assessment, you'll receive a customized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs. We'll work closely with you and your family to coordinate your care with the appropriate specialists. Many specialty services are available right in the same building, including speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, ACM labs and Borg & Ide CT/MRI.
Hear from Darlene Wischmeyer -- her mom has dementia. She found the highest quality care in a compassionate, supportive environment from our team.
Our goal is to evaluate you as thoroughly as possible to ensure that you receive the right type of treatments. While some cognitive issues may be a normal part of aging or a mild impairment, we are also looking for disorders that can affect cognition (e.g., stroke, Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson's disease) or that primarily affect cognition (e.g., Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies or frontotemporal dementia).
The Memory Center at Unity is a collaborative partnership between the departments of neurology and geriatric medicine.Search Our Providers
