Diagnosis

Accurate diagnosis is critical in neurology and even more so for degenerative conditions. Due to the complexity involved in testing, wrong diagnosis is common with many neurological diseases. Wrong diagnosis can expose you to the wrong course of treatment and a negative outcome.

At Dementech, we use the highest quality technology coupled with some of the world’s most renowned experts in Parkinson’s Disease to deliver accurate diagnosis that will lead to the best possible course of treatment.

Risk Assessment & Prevention

If one of your family members suffered or is suffering from Parkinson’s Disease then we offer an advanced testing program that can detect the probability of you ever getting the disease.

This is of critical importance for people that could be genetically predisposed as the earlier you are diagnosed the more help we can provide with a course of treatment. When Parkinson’s is diagnosed at an advanced stage, it is more difficult to deal with the common symptoms.

Cutting-edge technology developed in collaboration with Dementech offers us insight years ahead as to the possibility of you developing Parkinson’s.
