Neurologic diseases and nervous system disorders affect how the entire body works. When something goes wrong with one part of the central nervous system — brain, spinal cord or nerves — there can be trouble moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing or learning. Problems with memory, senses or mood can also occur.
Prevea neurologists specialize in the nervous system and the diagnosis and treatment of its disorders including nerves, brain, spinal cord and muscles. They work with the patient’s primary care provider, occupational therapists and physical therapists to provide the comprehensive care needed.

Are you concerned about memory loss in yourself or a loved one?
Forgetfulness can sometimes be a normal part of aging, making it hard to know when to get help. We’re here to relieve the anxiety and worry.
Memory loss, behavior changes or a significant difference in one’s ability to think clearly are all reasons to talk to a specialist — and because people with dementia lose their mental abilities at different rates, it’s never too early to call.
When memory concerns start affecting daily routines, don’t wait; seek medical advice to determine the cause of the symptoms and how to improve the quality of life. Early recognition and intervention can help individuals and loved ones understand and adapt to changes in memory. Specialists at the Prevea Memory Assessment Clinic can evaluate the extent of memory loss and develop a plan of care that best suits your needs.
Memory Assessment Clinic
The clinic is staffed by an experienced neuropsychologist, neurologists, nurse practitioner and neuropsychometrists dedicated to diagnosing the causes of memory loss and treating dementia
and Alzheimer’s disease
. We also provide the tools and knowledge to cope with memory loss for both the patient and the family.
Prevea is affiliated with the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute (WAI) which means the staff has access to the latest knowledge of dementia treatment options and research opportunities. Staff also receives training, observation time and/or guidance from the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute and the University of Wisconsin Health Memory Assessment Clinic.
What is dementia?
Dementia is the loss of thinking, memory and reasoning skills to such an extent that it seriously affects a person’s ability to carry out daily activities. Dementia is not a disease itself, but a group of symptoms caused by certain diseases or conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease.
What is Alzheimer’s disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is an age-related, non-reversible brain disorder that develops over a period of years. Initially, people experience memory loss and confusion, which may be mistaken for the kinds of memory changes that are sometimes associated with normal aging. Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia characterized by cognitive and behavioral problems. It is the most common type of dementia among people age 65 and older.
