Washington Regional Clinic for Senior Health Road Map


The Memory Clinic at Washington Regional offers a compassionate and state-of-the-art approach to diagnosing and treating disorders of memory.  We understand that some changes with memory and thinking may be reversible, and should not necessarily be considered an inevitable part of aging. In addition, we are committed to assisting our patient’s family and caregivers through education and support, to ensure that they have the resources they require.

Our Team

Our multi-disciplinary team includes members from geriatric medicine, geriatric neuropsychology, neurology, geriatric psychiatry, social work, and nursing. All members of our team have specialized training in geriatrics and disorders of memory.

Stephen Gemmel, Ph.D., Director of the Washington Regional Memory Clinic and Cognitive Training Center, was featured on KNWA's "Your Health" about brain fitness: click here to view the video.  Alan Diamond, D.O., was also recently featured about Huntington's Disease: click here to view the video.
