I have read here about how Alzheimers is diagnosed, but I'm still not clear on what the next steps should be. Do I return to the Primary Care doctor who gave tests that diagnosed dementia or go straight to a neurologist? Can either of them diagnose Alzheimers on history and other tests or are brain imaging tests required?
How scary are the brain imaging test? I don't think my LO could handle an MRI without being sedated. Are these imaging tests necessary?
