Behavioral & Cognitive Medicine
There are many possible treatments for depression, anxiety, and other behavioral or cognitive issues. Understand the cause and the best possible options based on your personal needs.
When it comes to behavioral analysis, some of the most common diagnoses that people present include depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and presence on the Autism Spectrum. Depression refers to low mood, feelings of sadness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities.
Anxiety, on the other hand, involves excessive worry and fear, and can present itself in a variety of ways such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. ADHD involves difficulties with attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. PTSD involves the emergence of symptoms after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event.
Lastly, Autism Spectrum encompasses a range of developmental disorders that affect speech, communication, and social interactions. These diagnoses, among others, can be assessed through behavioral analysis in order to identify patterns of behavior, determine contributing factors, and develop effective interventions to improve overall well-being.
Neurowellness Testing by Sanesco is very useful when applied by an expert such as Dr Randall in any of these situations
Dr. Randall performs a Clinical Cognitive Evaluation by administering a battery of standardized tests to assess various cognitive functions such as memory, attention, problem-solving, and language abilities. The evaluation usually begins with an interview to gather information about the patient’s medical and psychiatric history, lifestyle, and daily activities.
Dr. Randall then performs several tests, such as the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE), the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA), and the Trail Making Test, among others. The results of these tests are evaluated in light of the patient’s medical history and the doctor’s observations during the testing process. The evaluation provides insight into the patient’s thinking and cognitive skills, which can help diagnose conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and brain injuries.
The evaluation also helps Dr. Randall formulate a treatment plan and determine appropriate support services for the patient.
