  • Comments from a Ph.D. at Spokane Psychology & Neuropsychology P.S.

    1. Patient is a delightful, bright 19-year- old high school graduate who has had some ongoing cognitive challenges stemming from an MVA about 3 years ago. Results of repeat neuropsychological assessment show she has made gains in several areas of functioning including delayed memory recall, processing complex verbal language, and word-finding latency. She has made progress to a lesser degree for sustained attention,
    processing speed, and working memory span, these areas still need treatment and are likely to have an impact on her college success.
    2. Patient is in hyperbaric treatments. I am pleased with her progress and would like to see this therapy continue until she has reached maximum benefit.
