Providence Medical Group Behavioral Health and Providence Alaska Medical Center offer neuropsychological and psychodiagnostic assessment services for older adolescent (16 and older), adult, and geriatric individuals. Clinical neuropsychology is a specialty profession that focuses on examining the effects of brain and spinal cord injury, and diseases of the central nervous system on cognitive, intellectual, emotional, and behavioral functioning.
