Our dedicated team of providers, researchers, and educators:
At our state-of-the-art facility we work together to provide an accurate diagnosis. Our caring providers and staff will guide you with ongoing management techniques. Education and support information are available for families and caregivers.
Patients do not need a referral to make an appointment with our clinical providers unless it is required by your insurance. We accept patients who are showing signs of memory loss, dementia or early-stage Alzheimer's disease.
At the appointment, patients will receive a thorough evaluation and accurate diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is determined, our expert team of clinicians provide ongoing treatment and symptom management that may include clinical services or support from other specialists.
Byrd Institute is offering Telehealth appointments for patients. Please contact the Byrd Institute directly at (813) 821-8086 to book a Telehealth appointment.
Clinical Research and Drug Studies
As part of an academic medical center, we are also involved in groundbreaking clinical research. Participation in a study is not required to be seen at the Byrd Alzheimer's Institute.
We also understand the impact Alzheimer’s has on the entire family. We produce a caregiver podcast and conduct a monthly support group and caregivers workshops to provide families with the knowledge and skills to help them provide the best care for their loved one. Please visit our Caregiver Page for more information.
