Holly Carlson Zhao, PhD, MA, Psychologist in Houston
I am a neuropsychologist who specializes in treating adults and older adults with thinking issues like Alzheimer's disease or ADHD. I founded the Center for Optimal Brain Health (CFOBH) because I am passionate about helping people stay sharp. My specialty is taking care of your brain and caring for people affected by memory loss. We also offer Geriatric Care Management services.If you or your loved one needs ongoing care, we work directly with you to help you live as independently and safely as possible. At CFOBH, you receive the answers you've been looking for.
If you are having trouble with memory or thinking we will find the answers you need through a customized neuropsychological evaluation. This gives you a diagnosis and a suggested plan of care that is easy to understand. We also offer baseline wellness exams through cutting edge screenings.
In my line of work, time is of the essence. Visit us and take advantage of all that is available to you to age well. Should trouble arise, I'd like to be the trusted resource you call for answers. I look forward to seeing you soon - Dr. Carlson Zhao
