Memory Evaluation

Preparing for Memory Evaluation  – Video Series

The physicians of the Neurology Department at KP South San Francisco have created a series of brief online videos for caregivers who are preparing to bring a patient to a memory evaluation appointment.  To view these videos you will need an Internet connection and audio (computer volume “on” or external speakers).

Please note that memory evaluation appointments are by referral only.  If you believe that someone you care for may need a memory evaluation appointment, please contact his or her primary care physician.

We would like your feedback on the video series.  After watching the videos, please take a moment to complete our online survey:
