Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Isaacson "As an Alzheimer's specialist and Director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic, and having several family members with the disease, my clinical practice and research focuses on providing the latest evidence-based and comprehensive management options for treatment, as well as to reduce risk.

Most people are unaware that Alzheimer's disease (AD) begins in the brain up to 20-30 years before the first symptom of memory loss. Therefore, there is ample time for people to make brain-healthy lifestyle and dietary choices for this "pre-clinical," or "pre-symptomatic," stage of AD, in an effort to delay onset."
