The Neuropsychology Clinic, P.C.
Established in 1997, The Neuropsychology Clinic, P.C. has proudly provided neuropsychological services in Tuscaloosa and West Alabama for two decades. The Neuropsychology Clinic provides cognitive assessments that detect changes or abnormalities in brain functioning and establish cognitive baselines prior to starting an intervention or to monitor/rule out progressive declines over time. Neuropsychological assessments are appropriate to evaluate or diagnose memory loss (e.g. Dementia, Alzheimer's disease), AD/HD, learning disabilities, sensory processing disorders, head injuries, strokes, competency, and pre-surgical fitness (e.g. gastric bypass, lap band, pain stimulator). To more effectively serve the community, the clinic relocated from the Black Warrior Medical Center to its current location on Helen Keller Blvd. in January of 2015.
