Memory Loss Treatment in Phoenix, Arizona
When you notice you’re forgetting a lot more than the mundane details of every day life, it can be a problem: repeated conversations, the names of people close to you, or even the place where you are.
Short term memory loss affects almost everyone every day. Momentarily forgetting where you put your car keys, where you put your favorite pair of shoes, or the name of someone you met somewhere (“I’m sorry, have we met?”) are common. However, if memory loss is becoming a concern, the doctors at Foothills Neurology offer a holistic approach to testing and memory loss treatment for Phoenix, Arizona residents.
