How to Schedule an Appointment
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment for yourself or a loved one, please print a new patient packet or contact the Stead Family Memory Clinic at (602) 839-6900 for more information. Please be aware that due to insurance requirements, it may take up to two weeks to process patient information prior to scheduling an appointment.
Each new patient evaluation includes a 90-minute initial visit with Banner Alzheimer's Institute (BAI) experts that covers:
- Detailed medical history (to be conducted over the phone one week prior to the office visit)
- Physical examination
- Cognitive evaluation to assess memory abilities and thought processes
- Overall assessment and care plan
Our experts may also recommend additional testing, including laboratory work and brain imaging scans to be conducted at a later date.
While most patients and family choose to continue to have their dementia-related needs attended to at Banner Alzheimer's Institute (BAI), we are happy to provide a comprehensive plan for the primary care physician to execute. All non-dementia-related medical issues are deferred to the primary care physician. Please visit our physicians and referral page for more information.
