New Patients

Getting Started

If you or a loved one is experiencing memory loss, unexplained movement or has been diagnosed with a form of dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease or a movement disorder such as Parkinson’s, Memory & Movement Charlotte welcomes your phone call.

You do not need a referral, although many of our patients come to us at the recommendation of their primary care physician or neurologist. We accept most major insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid.

Family-Focused Approach

Dementia and Parkinson’s disease impact not only the person with the illness but those who care for them. We understand that to provide the best medical care for patients, we must have input from those who know them best. This takes time.

As the illness progresses, having a caregiver who understands what to expect can make all the difference. Our doctors and support staff take the time necessary to diagnose and treat the patient and to meet privately with caregivers to provide support and education. Your first appointment will take 90 minutes to two hours. Subsequent appointments will typically last 45 to 60 minutes.

At each visit, we take the time to listen. We welcome your questions. We want to hear your concerns. We will work alongside you to navigate the complexities of your illness, together.

Annual Fee

Memory & Movement Charlotte is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates as a membership-style practice. Our patient-to-doctor ratio is significantly lower than a traditional medical practice so we can provide the time and attention needed to care for the patient and caregiver(s).

To make this possible, we rely on grant funding, the generosity of donors and there is a $700 annual fee. Scholarships may be provided by our parent organization, Charlotte Neuroscience Foundation, to those for whom this is a financial challenge. Scholarship applications and payment plan options are available on request.
