Cognitive Testing Q & A

What is cognitive testing?

Cognitive testing is an assessment of your cognitive abilities. The team at PhillWell utilizes the Cambridge Brain Sciences cognitive test, an online service that tests your cognitive skills and determines if you have symptoms of ADHD. When left untreated, ADHD makes paying attention and sitting still tricky. It can negatively affect your performance at work, school, or in relationships. 

Fortunately, you can diminish learning disorders and thrive in everyday situations with the right treatment.

Is cognitive testing right for me?

After discussing your symptoms and medical history with you, Dr. Phillips lets you know if you’re a candidate for cognitive testing or other diagnostic tests. She also completes a comprehensive psychiatric assessment by asking you a series of questions about your behaviors, mood, and thought patterns. 

Symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Problems paying attention
  • Making careless mistakes
  • Difficulty sitting still
  • Impulsiveness
  • Poor planning skills
  • Disorganization
  • Poor time management
  • Difficulty multitasking
  • Restlessness
  • Excessive activity 
  • Mood swings
  • Low frustration tolerance
  • Problems following through
  • Difficulty coping with stress

PhillWell providers also offer genetic testing to determine which medications or other treatments best match your needs.

What should I expect during cognitive testing?

Cambridge Brain Sciences cognitive testing uses an online platform, questions, and neurocognitive tasks that you can complete at home under the direction of Dr. Phillips. Doing so allows her to obtain in-depth assessments of your cognitive abilities. 

Cognitive testing gives Dr. Phillips a good idea of whether or not you have ADHD, attention-deficit disorder (ADD), or other cognitive challenges that require treatment. 

What happens after cognitive testing?

After undergoing cognitive testing with the PhillWell experts, Dr. Phillips reviews the results with you. Suppose unpleasant symptoms negatively affect your quality of life. In that case, Dr. Phillips offers medication prescriptions, lifestyle-change counseling, and psychotherapy to help you better cope with your condition and thrive at work, at school, or in interpersonal relationships. 

Get plenty of sleep and regular exercise, keep stress levels low, and eat nutritious foods. Avoid drugs and alcohol. 

You always have a voice in your treatment, and Dr. Phillips often combines multiple treatment modalities into your plan to give you the best chance of long-term success.
