Dr. Giunta evaluates known or suspected neurological conditions such as head injury and dementia, typically at the request of a neurologist, internist or other professional. A neuropsychological assessment is conducted to elucidate strengths and weaknesses in cognitive functioning and, where possible, to help diagnose the presence and severity of neurological conditions. Assessment of social and emotional functioning, including the presence of depression, is routinely included. Feedback is provided, along with recommendations and referrals.
Dr. Giunta has particular interest and expertise in geriatric neuropsychology. Geriatric evaluations are aimed at helping family members plan the best course of care for their family member in late life.
