Physicians have historically been one of the Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center’s (ADRC) most valuable sources of participant referrals. We hope to improve physician confidence in making referrals to our center by helping them recognize the ways in which their patients’ involvement in our center’s programs may complement the clinical care they can provide.
We do not replace you as health care provider, as we are not a treatment center. Rather, we seek a cooperative relationship in which our role is to give patients feedback on their current status and an opportunity to make a valuable contribution to research investigating Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders. In addition, we offer no cost Quality of Life Programs for patients and their caregivers whether they are willing and able to participate in research or not.
We are committed to being prompt and professional when contacting your patients. We will be more than happy to give you updates regarding the patients you refer to the ADRC as long as the patient provides authorization.
Please feel free to contact us at (858) 822-4800 if you would like more information or have questions.
