Dr. Levinoff will be active in the JGH Memory Clinic and will pursue clinical research into mild cognitive impairment and its association with the development of delirium during hospitalization.
My 80-year old mother and I spent the morning with Dr. Levinoff yesterday at the Memory Clinic, We found her to be kind, efficient and respectful of my mother’s fading cognitive abilities. Her insight was shrewd and confident. I am so pleased to have this clinic and its professionals at our service, and even though it took a year to get the appointment, it was worth the travel time and effort. Thanks to the entire team, for finally giving my Mom the diagnosis we need to move forward with positive action and compassion!
