A memory screening is a series of questions and/or tasks that take about 20 minutes to complete. The screening can indicate if someone might benefit from a comprehensive medical evaluation. However, it is not intended to diagnose any illness or replace consultation with a qualified health care provider. 


  • In 2020, as many as 5.8 million Americans were living with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Younger people may get Alzheimer’s disease, but it is less common.
  • The number of people living with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond age 65.
  • This number is projected to nearly triple to 14 million people by 2060.
  • Symptoms of the disease can first appear after age 60, and the risk increases with age.

About Hattiesburg Clinic Memory Center:

The Memory Center operates as a clinical practice focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with memory disorders including Alzheimer’s disease and early pre-Alzheimer’s characterized as Mild Cognitive Impairment. Under the direction of a fellowship-trained, behavioral/cognitive neurologist, the Center will work with patients to establish an appropriate care plan, which may include determining eligibility for newly approved, disease-modifying immunotherapies such as Leqembi (lecanemab). Our on-site infusion clinic offers convenient access for patients, as these new treatments are typically administered intravenously. We also explore clinical trial opportunities for patients who may benefit from investigational agents which go beyond the currently available treatment options.

The Memory Center has both clinical and research experience utilizing molecular imaging tools (amyloid PET, tau PET) as diagnostic biomarkers for early Alzheimer’s disease. We are an Alzheimer’s Foundation certified memory screening site and offer free screenings periodically throughout the year. In addition, our experienced team of psychometric raters can provide in-depth cognitive testing in order to help establish a diagnosis of cognitive impairment, as well as longitudinal assessments to track changes over time. In summary, all the patient-focused activities of the Memory Center combine to create a multi-disciplinary environment that uniquely enhances the clinical experience.
