At the USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute, our goal is to provide the highest level of patient care to individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other memory problems. We look forward to working with you. Below is all the information you need to start your journey with us.
Appointments & Referrals
There is no referral required (unless required by insurance carrier) to be seen by our physicians or clinical providers. We accept patients who are demonstrating signs of memory loss, dementia or early stage Alzheimer's disease. Participation in a clinical research study is not required to be seen at the Byrd Alzheimer's Institute.

Below you will find the Memory Impairment Screening Form which all new patients must complete and return to our office for review prior to scheduling an appointment.

Upon receipt of your screening form a doctor will review it and your insurance will be verified, then one of our client service representatives will contact you to set up an appointment. We ask that the patient's spouse or another family member accompany the patient to the clinic visit.
Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your appointment to allow time to pick up your USF parking permit and complete the registration process.
