Speaking about the services, Dr Prithika Chary, Senior Consultant Neurologist & Neurosurgeon, Kauvery Hospital said, "The memory services at the clinic will include a comprehensive assessment of an individual's memory that ensures a diagnosis is given as soon as possible, if dementia is identified as an issue.
