When a patient has overlapping or unclear symptoms, it can be hard to make an accurate diagnosis. Psychological testing includes diagnostic clarification as well as useful recommendations for planning future care. IHC Associates currently has one psychologist with specialties in psychological testing and sleep assessment.
Testing can help clinicians to:
Distinguish an organic neurological problem from a dysfunctional behavioral pattern
Prevent misdiagnosis and ineffectual treatment
Measure individual cognitive and intellectual strengths and weaknesses, personality traits, feelings, and beliefs that influence the problem
Develop useful recommendations, such as timelines for planning and coordinating care, to help the patient improve or maintain functioning
Primary Areas of Testing/Assessment
General Cognitive Assessments
Cognitive testing distinguishes organic neurological symptoms from symptoms due to a mental health concern. Useful in clarifying diagnosis and treatment options for vascular events, dementia, AD/HD and more.
