The Memory Disorders Clinic at UCLA-Olive View Medical Center is under the leadership of Sheldon Wolf, MD.
This clinic specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with memory and cognitive disorders, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease. The majority of patients are from the Hispanic community in the San Fernando Valley, but the clinic cares is for both English and Spanish speaking patients. Comprehensive evaluations by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and neuropsychologists are provided for people with memory problems or suspected Alzheimer's disease. Obtaining an early diagnosis enables patients to take advantage of the most effective treatments and to maintain the highest level of functioning for the longest period of time.
