Reverse or slow memory loss with a comprehensive, personalized program designed to prevent or reverse cognitive decline.
This one-day visit evaluates memory strengths and weaknesses, screens for disease before symptoms, detects the degree of existing cognitive decline, and is individualized to address any specific issues that you may have.
Unhurried, one-on-one time with Dr. Robert Greene to discuss all your health issues with an emphasis on cognitive function, memory, family history, and possible causes (such as toxins or stress).
Comprehensive lab tests and other necessary tests, all in one day. You're welcome to have a loved one with you throughout the evaluations.
Cognitive testing including verbal, math, spatial, memory and other validated tests
You get a summary letter and “notebook” with a Personal Health Portfolio™ and an action plan specific to you.
WellMax is not typically reimbursed by insurance or Medicare.
The cost of the program starts at $4900.

What does the One-Day Bredesen Cognoscopy Program include?
BRAIN MRI WITH NEUROQUANT
Measures volumes of the hippocampus, ventricles and other brain structures and compares the volumes to norms to assess neurological conditions and neurodegenerative diseases.
Ample personal time with Dr. Robert Greene to discuss all your health issues, with an emphasis on cognitive function, memory, family history, and possible causes (such as toxins or stress). About Dr. Greene ›
COMPLETE GENETIC TESTING & COUNSELING
We create a report that includes several important genetic variants that can contribute to dementia, and that may provide clues to specific treatments.
Heavy metal testing
A heavy metals panel is a group of tests that measures the quantity of specific potentially toxic metals in the blood, urine or, more rarely, in the hair or other body tissue or fluid.
Cognitive testing including verbal, math, spatial, memory and other validated tests.
Research has shown that a declining sense of smell can be an early sign of dementia. We use a validated commercial test of smelling and score it to provide a baseline functional measure.
Hormones, including estrogen and testosterone, cortisol (adrenal function) and others.
Chemistries, blood count, complete thyroid panel, CRP, homocysteine, and many other tests as recommended by Dr. Bredesen.
Pulmonary Function testing
Pulmonary Function testing to confirm adequate oxygen and ventilation.
We create a report that includes several important genetic variants that can contribute to dementia, and that may provide clues to specific treatments. Genes that we check include ApoE, APP, PSEN1, PSEN2, CD33, TREM2, CR1, MTHFR, as well as Factor II, Factor V, and others. These can be passed on to family members and it may be important to identify them early, and take action. We can provide genetic counseling to family members as well.
Call us to discuss specific concerns about you or your loved one, and to see how California's Premier Bredesen Program can help.
Additional studies that can be added on your visit to WellMax:
Polysomnography (Sleep study)
Polysomnography (Sleep study) is available at WellMax. We can monitor 14 leads while you sleep. This can be done in our clinic or in your home. We can use this information to detect sleep abnormalities in breathing (oxygen delivery to the brain) and information from the brain waves, i.e. stages of sleep. Some patients feel like they’re sleeping well but their brain is not going into Stage III and IV “slow wave” sleep, and decreased slow wave sleep has been associated with greater “tau” in the brain, and early Alzheimer’s.
Screening with ultrasound imaging in our office: comfortable, private, non-invasive, and no radiation. We screen the thyroid, carotid arteries, liver, spleen, kidneys, aorta, and the uterus and ovaries for women, or prostate and bladder for men.
The IMT carotid provides a color report with an image that shows you if you have any build up of plaque in the arteries. The accumulation of plaque in the arteries is arteriosclerosis, and sometimes the arteries supplying the brain can be either narrowed, with decreased blood flow to the brain, or they can have soft plaque that becomes a source of multiple tiny plaque embolisms that damage the brain.
Bone screening with DEXA
We check the spine, hips, and total body for bone density.
Body Composition testing
Body Composition testing (via DEXA) We check your muscle mass and body fat for the whole body, but also the trunk, legs, and arms separately. Apple or pear-shaped? Let’s measure, set the baseline, and set goals.
coronary CT angiogram
The coronary CT angiogram provides color images of the arteries that supply your heart muscle. This is in much greater detail than the often offered “coronary calcium” test, and it can pick up soft plaque not seen on the often offered “coronary calcium” tests.
To screen for several types of cancer at its earliest stages.
Complete dermatological skin exam.
We screen for skin cancers and can treat or biopsy immediately if you wish. We teach you the ABCDE of melanoma screening. You are also offered the Visia Skin Analysis and consultation with a skin specialist at no additional charge.
Lung CT is the high-tech “rapid spiral” that in one second screens the lungs for nodules but also can pick up big lymph nodes and aorta issues and much more. It is MUCH more sensitive than a chest X-ray.
Much more accurate in detecting tumors than mammograms
Echocardiography can be done in our office in a few minutes. It provides information about your heart walls, chamber sizes, valves, and much more without needles or radiation.
A new study of 100 patients was published in October, 2018 reports that cognitive function improved.
